JKI Announces VI Tester Release in JKI Labs

JKI is excited to announce the JKI Labs release of VI Tester, a software test framework for LabVIEW that allows programmers to test their VIs (code) during the development process.

VI Tester

Software testing is a critical component of agile development and test driven development software engineering processes — it is also critical for validating software functionality. VI Tester is based on the industry standard xUnit software test architecture that is used in many other programming languages — this architecture is very flexible and powerful, but also very easy for beginners to learn.

    This is interesting news :) A nice looking tool. I’ve to test drive it.

    Tomi: Thanks! We’re looking forward to your feedback.

    It seems to be a very interesting tool.
    Hope I’ll find time to use it…

    In any case, you’ve done a great job, and it’s not the first time 😉

    Olivier: We hope you do find time to experiment with VI Tester. You might also find it interesting to know that we are working on a “Programmatic API” that will allow you to run tests programmatically in LabVIEW. For example, in VIPM’s Package Builder, you could create a Pre-Build Hook VI that tests your reuse library VIs, before building the VI Package. I’m really looking forward to this feature.

    Jim: In our reuse process we have already some test vis, but it’s not very “user-friendly” and it’s difficult to maintain… VI Tester can be a way to normalize these tests…
