Pierre-Henri Stanek, the Cantata Product Manager explained “With ever larger and more complex test projects, the amount of data loading required by the GUI has increased. Using a benchmark C++ project of 135 source files Cantata 9.1 generated a test in only 5 seconds, compared to 30 seconds in 9.0 (so 6 times faster). This benchmark illustrates the advantage of staying up-to-date with Cantata versions.”
The most important features of this version are as follows:
- An upgraded AutoTest ability for automatic test generation for C++ code.
- New HTML format test results which can be utilized as certification indication and are supported by Cantata.
- Rapid data loading in the GUI.
- Simpler management of Cantata regulated function calls during test case execution within the Test Case Editor for existing users.
