Alma is a software workshop for modeling and analyzing. It reads several sources (languages, models, etc.), helps you design for object-oriented modeling (definition of classes, relations, patterns, etc.), modifies the structure and the code, and outputs new sources, documentation, diagrams, etc. It is designed for object-oriented modeling (definition of classes and relations) and for migrating code in older languages. It meets two needs, offering a simplified software modeling workshop for small projects and making it easier to do rewrites, ports, and encapsulation of non-OO code.
IDebug is an advanced debugging framework for Java. It provides the standard core debugging and specification constructs such as assertions, debug levels and categories, stack traces, and specialized exceptions. Debugging functionality can be fine-tuned to a per-thread and/or a per-class basis, debugging contexts can be stored and recovered from persistent store, and several aspects of the debugging run-time are configurable at the meta-level.
JUnitX is a module on top of JUnit 3.2 by Kent Beck and Erich Gamma. It is a well-designed Java testing framework to write tests in the style of Extreme Programming. It allows you access to private and protected classes, methods, and fields in order to write improved and well-organized test cases. JUnit and an old version of JUnitX are also part of Together since version 5.5.
Load is a utility for Web application and SOAP-based Web services performance and scalability testing. It features a scripting language and a library of test objects for the creation of intelligent agents that drive the Web application or SOAP-based Web service. Running hundreds of agents concurrently shows how your software performs in production environments. Load is a Java application that runs on Linux, Solaris, NT, Win2000, and Macintosh. While Load continues to be maintained, the next generation is the TestMaker program.
SLOCCount is a suite of programs for counting physical source lines of code (SLOC) in possibly large software systems. It can count physical SLOC for a wide number of languages. It can take a large set of files and automatically categorize their types using a number of different heuristics, and also comes with analysis tools.
The objective of the NIST Web Metrics Testbed is to explore the feasibility of a range of tools and techniques that support rapid, remote, and automated testing and evaluation of website usability. There are currently six components: 1. Web Static Analyzer Tool (WebSAT): checks web page HTML against typical usability guidelines. 2. Web Category Analysis Tool (WebCAT): lets the usability engineer construct and conduct a web category analysis (card-sorting). 3. Web Variable Instrumenter Program (WebVIP): instruments a website to capture a log of user interaction. 4. Framework for Logging Usability Data (FLUD): a file format and parser for representation of user interaction logs (such as those captured by WebVIP). 5. VisVIP Tool: produces a 3D visualization of user navigation paths through a website, based on FLUD data. 6. TreeDec: adds navigation aids to the pages of a website.
XPTest for Together provides two patterns and a module to allow the fast development of test cases. The TestCase pattern creates a class which has to be customized to contain test methods for a given class containing business methods. Using the TestPackage pattern, a class collecting all TestCases recursively can be created. The execution module allows one to start a Swing or AWT GUI to test single classes or packages in any granularity. It depends on JUnit by Kent Beck and Erich Gamma, and is designed to significantly speed up the development of Extreme Programming-inspired tests within the Together UML modeling tool and wanna-be-IDE. Since version 5.5, XPTest is also part of the Together distribution.
