TAF Test Application Framework

The emlix Test Application Framework (TAF) is a quality assurance tool for embedded Linux systems, which allows a development- and production-related quality assurance by continuous system-, module- and integration testing with a very good test coverage. Developer tests are ideally supplemented. The documentation of the results is carried out automatically and reproducible.

The TAF consists of:

  • framework for automatic execution of tests on the target hardware
  • currently approx. 250 automated and mainly hardware-related tests
  • tooling for the reproducible creation of test reports

At the start of the project, a set of relevant test cases will be chosen and, if necessary complemented, individually adapted and configured. After the one-time setup effort, the actual test runs can be performed in a very efficient and economical way.

The emlix Test Application Framework (TAF) offers:

  • flexible, product specific test setup
  • integration of additional, product-specific tests
  • standardized, automated testing
  • clear versioning of each test run
  • various possibilities to control test procedure and order of tests
  • comparative tests of different hardware revisions
  • test runs on the target or on a host against the target
  • reproducible archiving of test and test runs (traceability) in database
  • reproducible generation of test reports

Within a project, emlix' customers have the option of ordering a TAF setup (one-time) and development-related test runnings (TAF Release Monitoring). If desired the TAF can be used directly at the customers side in the framework of a subscription or maintenance contract (TAF Workbench). Furthermore TAF can also be used to test embedded Linux board support packages which have been externally developed or bought in addition (TAF Review).
