A PCTE Host-Target Distributed Testing Environment

Objective

The objective of APHRODITE was to provide an initial basis for a PCTE host-target distributed testing environment.
The project's aims were to produce:
-a set of recommendations for programming and interfacing target systems, and for allowing their testing in a distributed host-target environment
-a prototype of this PCTE host-target distributed testing environment, implemented on a network of PC/AT hosts and including one or more target systems
-a preliminary evaluation of the prototype to assess the viability of the system as a production system.
The objective was to provide an initial basis for a portable common tool environment (PCTE) host target distributed testing environment. The project's aims were to produce a set of recommendations for programming and interfacing target systems, and for allowing their testing in a distributed host target environment; a prototype of this PCTE host target distributed testing environment, implemented on a network of personal computer/(PC/AT) hosts and including one or more target systems; and a preliminary evaluation of the prototype to assess the viability of the system as a production system. A study of the adaptions necessary to port Emeraude/PCTE to the CHORUS system was made. Development of a version of CHORUS enabling the distribution of a PCTE based CHORUS was achieved. A LOTOS model of the system was developed which proved useful in identifying weaknesses of the approach.

Exploitation
Development tools and services for a PCTE host-target distributed testing environment, developed from the results of APHRODITE, are being marketed by Chorus Systmes.
