QA Systems Announces Cantata 9.5


QA Systems has announced the General Availability of Cantata 9.5, the latest version of its unit and integration testing tool for C and C++ which now includes: Impact Analysis, Eclipse project set up for non-Eclipse toolchains, and a new Test Project Creator Wizard together with new .zip & .tar installer archives.

Impact Analysis has been added to the innovative Code Change Analysis feature. This extension enables complete change-based testing. Identifying tests impacted by code or build option changes allows just the required sub-set of tests to be re-run, making continuous integration testing faster.

“Project set up for non-Eclipse toolchains can take time, particularly to resolve missing header file paths and pre-processor defines or macros. This is before you can begin testing;” explains Pierre-Henri Stanek, Cantata’s Product Manager. “The ‘New Test Project Creator Wizard’ automates this process by detecting and importing system build system settings.” he proudly added.

Furthermore, the new simplified, .zip & .tar installer archives remove installation constraints from firewalls, anti-virus software, and Windows environment variables; installation into Dockers and VMs is faster.

Another feature of Cantata 9.5 is the inclusion of an integrated option library to speed up the process of setting up target deployments. This database is populated from thousands of options used across previously registered Cantata deployments. The improved workflow in the deployment editor makes it easier to modify, maintain and update your existing deployments.

Cantata version 9.5 is available now. For further information, please visit, or contact
