Abstract

Comprehensive Test Tool (CTT) is an integrated testing development tool that coordinates and standardizes testing for developers, testers, managers and system assurance auditors. CTT can be used not only for component testing, but also for build verification, development, product and system testing. CTT is a menu-driven tool executed on a virtual machine operating system (VM) with SQL (Sequential Queries Language) data base support. The data base contains department information, component information and test information. The latter includes information on variations, test cases, test programs, test plans, test buckets and test status. (Image Omitted) Using CTT, testers and developers can produce reports with this information for themselves, their managers and system assurance personnel.
