The products serve the financial and energy markets. The methodology was primarily the Waterfall model with some aspects of V and Agile models. Testplans were created (mapped) from technical specification documents. Manual and automated testing was performed on Windows and UNIX/Linux platforms. Defects were entered and tracked in Remedy. The architecture was three-tiered.

  • Core FAME: A proprietary database with a proprietary query language (FAME 4GL) tested on Solaris, Windows, RedHat, SUSE, IBM AUX, and HP-UX. Automation was accomplished with the use of NT, Korn, and C scripts, and IBM/Rational Robot, depending on the platform. The scripts ran unattended overnight and reviewed the following day. Some scripts were relegated to sanity and regression testing. (QA team size: four or more)
  • C HLI: A C API for Core FAME. The test scripts, written in the language of C, were platform independent and ran unattended overnight. The command line C/C++ compilers used were Sun WorkShop 5.0, GNU, and MS VC++ 6.0, 2003, and 2005. (QA team size: one)
  • TimeIQ: A Java API for Core FAME. The test scripts were written in the language of Java and tested on multiple platforms. (QA team size: two to three)
  • TimeIQ Charts: This is a suite of JavaBeans specifically for web based charting working with data taken from the FAME database. Rational Robot was used. (QA team size: two to three)
  • IChartz: This is a Java/web based charting application working with data pulled from the FAME database. (QA team size: one)
  • DataExtractor and Input File Builder: DataExtractor is a Java based command line application released with a Windows GUI application written in C#. The destination options are a CSV or XML file; another FAME database; or a relational database. DataExtractor was tested on multiple platforms manually, adding automation where possible. (QA team size: one)
  • PAWS: This legacy GUI application and its Excel Add-in, written in APL, presents energy data taken from its proprietary database. It was tested strictly with Rational Robot. (QA team size: one)
  • EnergyScope: This application and its Excel Add-in, written in Java, requests data from the FAME database presenting it in several optional formats. Robot scripts created for PAWS testing were adapted for automated testing. (QA team size: varied)
