Language-driven interface for an automated testing framework

To test the functionality of a computer system, automated testing may use an automation testing tool that emulates user interactions. A database may store words each having a colloquial meaning that is understood by a general population. For each of these words, the database may store associated computer instructions that can be executed to cause a computer to perform the function that is related to the meaning of the word. During testing, a word may be received having a colloquial meaning that is understood by a general population. The database may be queried for the received word and the set of computer instructions may be returned by the database. The automated testing tool may then perform the function returned to the colloquial meaning of the word. The words stored in the database may be in English or another language.

Processor having a trace access instruction to access on-chip trace memory

A computer system includes a memory for storing instructions executable by a processor and an on-chip trace memory having a plurality of locations for storing trace information that indicates execution flow in the processor. A trace access instruction provides for access to the on-chip trace memory on the processor. The trace access instruction can be a write instruction or a read instruction. Typically, both read and write to the trace memory is provided. The system also has the capability to trace on start or restart of an executable thread by providing to the processor an indication of which executable thread to trace via a debug port. That indicates to the processor to provide trace information when the executable thread starts. When execution of the executable thread starts, the processor places an identifier corresponding to the executable thread into the trace memory to indicate that subsequent entries placed into the trace memory are part of said executable thread. The processor may also provide an entry indicating when the thread stops executing.

Automated Enterprise Software Development

The preferred embodiment provides a system and method for automatically generating enterprise software applications with minimal level of manual coding. The preferred embodiment provide a graphical design tool that models an application using Unified Model Language (UML), validate the UML model, and automatically generate deployable application. The preferred embodiment also provides a framework of libraries that the target application can be build from.

Method and system for providing tamper-resistant software

A method and system for protecting only a portion of the software to be protected against tampering is described. Such a portion may be stored in a tamper-resistant physical device, with optional encryption, for downloading when needed for execution. Several layers of tamper resistance are provided without excessively impacting performance of the protected software. For instance, obfuscation is applied to the code for the service module to minimize the large expense associated with obfuscation. The invention includes embodiments that deliver critical logic, policy information and other similar information with the help of mobile agents, which may be hosted by a server in a smart card.

Automated application test system

An automated application test system comprises a plurality of clients (3) providing test interfaces to corresponding users, and a network of test nodes (4a) connected to the clients (3); wherein each said test node (4a) comprises one or more test devices locally connected to the test node (4a); and an agent (6) arranged to execute one or more test applications on the locally connected test devices (4b) in accordance with requests from the clients (3).

Software safety code analyzer based on static analysis of source code and testing method therefor

This invention relates to one software analyzer and its test method based on source codes static analysis, wherein the analysis device comprises five function modules of code analysis device, codes analysis engine, safety risk report device, safety rules database and user interface; this invention gets programs safety risk to user according to the source program and grammar and meanings and delivers the safety leak to the user for audit and evaluation.

System and method for conditional tracing of computer programs

A software system is disclosed which facilitates the process of tracing the execution paths of a program, called the client. The tracing is performed without requiring modifications to the executable or source code files of the client. Trace data collected during the tracing operation is collected according to instructions in a trace options file. At run time, the tracing library attaches to the memory image of the client. The tracing library is configured to monitor execution of the client and to collect trace data, based on selections in the trace options file. Conditional tracing, through the use of triggers and actions taken in response to the triggers, allows the developer to control the tracing operation. The triggers can be conditional triggers in which the corresponding action is taken only if a conditional expression is satisfied. The system can trace multiple threads and multiple processes. The tracing system provides a remote mode and an online mode. In remote mode, the developer sends the trace control information (which can include triggers and corresponding actions) to a remote user site together with a small executable image called the agent that enables a remote customer, to generate a trace file that represents execution of the client application at the remote site. In online mode, the developer can generate trace options (including triggers and corresponding actions), run and trace the client, and display the trace results in near real-time on the display screen during execution of the client program.

Method, system, and program for logging statements to monitor execution of a program

Disclosed is a system, method, and program for generating trace statements to a log file. A log method in a program, such as a Java program, including an identifier parameter is processed. The program includes multiple instances of the log method to trace the execution of the program during debugging operations. A determination is made as to whether a variable indicates that log methods called with the identifier parameter should be processed. The class and method from which the log method was called is determined if the variable indicates that log methods called with the identifier parameter should be processed. Information on the identifier parameter and determined class and method are written to the log file.

Systems and methods for classification of messaging entities

Methods and systems for operation upon one or more data processors for assigning a reputation to a messaging entity. A method can include receiving data that identifies one or more characteristics related to a messaging entity's communication. A reputation score is determined based upon the received identification data. The determined reputation score is indicative of reputation of the messaging entity. The determined reputation score is used in deciding what action is to be taken with respect to a communication associated with the messaging entity.

Process and apparatus for tracing software entities in a distributed system

The invention relates to a process and apparatus for tracing software entities, more particularly a tracing tool providing tracing capabilities to entities in an application. The object-tracing tool provides software components to allow tracing the execution of an application. Tracing software entities is important for software developers to permit the quick localization of errors and hence facilitate the debugging process. It is also useful for the software user who wishes to view the control flow and perhaps add some modifications to the software. Traditionally, software-tracing tools have been confined to single node systems where all the components of an application run on a single machine. The novel tracing tool presented in this application provides a method and an apparatus for tracing software entities in a distributed computing environment. This is done by using a network management entity to keep track of the location of the entities in the system and by using a library of modules that can be inherited to provide tracing capabilities. It also uses a log file to allow the program developer or user to examine the flow, the occurrence of events during a trace and the values of designated attributes. The invention also provides a computer readable storage medium containing a program element to direct a processor of a computer to implement the software tracing process.
