Re: Part IV: Developing Software for Your Test Application

Rick - The approach to software modularity is a combination of the tools, supported modules and sequences to achieve a consistent, reordable testing environment.

Labview is an application development environment that supports both good and bad organization of software testing. This is true whether using purpose built instruemntation or software defined generic tools. LabView ADE is intependent of the software defined approach vs. purpose built instruments.

Software organization will greatly influence the ability to use/reorder/modify/extend tests. This will greatly drive the way the software testing modules/code are created.

Do you have any experience or suggestions on how to structure the software testing within the ADE?

For example, does it make sense to approach tests as a sequence that contains a "setup test", "execute the test", "tear down" to have the DUT in a common stable state between tests.
