Dear all,
again i have one more question or i would say i need advice to solve my next problem.

My Problem:
I have many SW units which do different function on a Digital Signal Processor Board (DSP Board). The Board has many DSPs exactly 4 DSPs. My Units will run on the DSPs that mean some of the Units will run on DSP 1 and the other on DSP 2 and etc.

I want to do integration test for my units. I do not know how the units are implemented but i know what they should do and i know what the DSP Board should do.

Do any body has an advice or a methode to do this integration test?

I would be very glad to receive your advices
Thanke you in advanced

Re: SW Integration Test

As a quick reply, I'm not a software person. You may find someone who can help you here, but there aren't many 'pure' software people who visit here.

Re: SW Integration Test

The term "integration test" is somewhat vague. It can mean anything from testing multiple (software) units (e.g., the GUI talks to the application correctly) to testing of software on its intended hardware platform.

From my experience, it's a "bridge" effort that gives you reasonable assurance that you are ready to take the system into verification testing. Unit testing gives you assurance that your units are operating as expected but you don't know how they will 'play together' without exercising them as an aggregate. It's typically a lower level test than requirements verification testing. You might still examine variable contents, etc.

Without going much further, what is directing you to do integration testing? What are the expectations you (others?) have for integration testing?

I agree with yodon. You need to figure out what you expect to get from 'integration testing'. It means different things to different people.
Once you determine the goal of the integration tests (what type of issues you are trying to uncover), then determining what to test, generally, becomes more obvious.
