Plugin that integrates software design and development tools, automated testing, introduced by LDRA

Nov. 30, 2021
Jenkins automates software building and connects control systems with automated testing processes for large-scale system-level software projects.

WIRRAL, England – LDRA in Wirral, England, is introducing a software plug-in that brings the capabilities of the LDRA tool suite into the Jenkins automation server for continuous integration for agile software development.

Jenkins automates and manages the build process and connects build and version control systems with quality management and automated testing processes for large-scale system-level software projects.

LDRA has long linked to Jenkins to enable developers to analyze, track test and verification fulfillment, and measure code quality. Now, developers can view LDRA results directly in Jenkins.

Jenkins is an open-source automation server that helps automate the parts of software development related to building, testing, deploying, and facilitating continuous integration and continuous delivery.

The LDRA plug-In for the Jenkins automation server makes system-level automated testing and verification easy for embedded software developers by presenting detailed results in Jenkins.

Managing large-scale safety-critical systems, which often require a global array of components and technology providers, is a difficult and costly process -- especially when development teams span continents, languages, and time zones.

This LDRA/Jenkins solution offers developers the ability to track productivity and build process efficiency while easing certification challenges and improving software quality. Defects are identified earlier in the software development life cycle, saving significant time and costs of identifying errors later.

By verifying standards conformance, the LDRA design and development tools suite helps companies demonstrate their systems meet rigorous certification standards, such as DO-178C for software considerations in airborne systems and equipment certification and ISO 26262 for road vehicle functional safety).

Specifically, the LDRA tool suite provides static and dynamic analysis, requirements traceability, verification, testing and automated documentation.
