Software Verification & Validation, Systems Analyst

  • Examined, analyzed and evaluated software and systems for multiple clients and rendered opinions on the suitability of the software to support continued development if released to a third party.
  • Multiple levels of examination are done: examination of source code, database descriptions and scripts, build instructions and design and requirements documentation as well as any information related to the environment required to continue development of said software resulting in a written opinion of completeness.
  • Advanced analysis requires setup of build environments for complete rebuild of software including operating system(s), compilers, databases and other required build tools. Successful completion includes compilation of software, identification of problem areas and interface with third parties to determine and implement solution to compilation and build issues. Types of verifications performed:
  • Level 1 - Inventory Test identifies the tools and system needed to maintain the technology placed in escrow.
  • Level 2 - Compile Test assembles the product and builds the executable code which is the computer-readable machine code. Performed various verifications and tests for various companies and their products, this included:
  • Compiled source code in various compilers such as VB6, Visual Studio 2003-2012, ANT/Maven, Java SDK, My Eclipse, etc.;
  • Analyzed and changed the source codes (C/C++/C#, Perl, JAVA (jsp, java, java script, Ruby (on Rails) etc.) necessary to complete a build; compiled source codes to create binary executable files;
  • Level 3 - Binary Comparison tests the functionality of the compiled deposit materials by comparing the files built from the Deposit Compile test to the actual licensed technology on the customer's site to ensure a full-match in file size. Using a Differencing tool, compared binary files created between what was compiled and the original files from beneficiary company obtained. Used various de-compiler tools such as JAD and 9Rays Spices.Net De-compiler
  • Level 4 - Full Usability confirms that the files built from the Binary Comparison work properly when installed. This included Setup of functional test environments including operating systems, web and application servers, databases and other required tools and performing build out of functional environment for software and functional evaluation based on instructions provided by original developer. After creating the functional system, I tested manually or used Automation tool such as Rational Robot and Selenium. This included:
  • Created a functional environment of the product being verified by integrating front and back end, edited the XML parameters and other configuration files.
