Automated unit & integration testing for Ada

AdaTEST 95 is a unit and integration testing tool, enabling developers to verify standard compliant or business critical code on host native and embedded target platforms.

All of the testing requirements for safety standards are met faster by automating:

  • Test framework generation
  • Test case generation
  • Test execution
  • Results diagnostics and report generation


AdaTEST 95 puts you in control of Ada package verification with wizard driven test scripting in the Ada 95 language, building and executing your tests in your compiler IDE. AdaTEST 95 provides the following for unit testing:

  • Automated checks for all standard Ada 95 data types records and arrays
  • Generic checks for instantiation with user defined types.
  • Black and white box tests
  • Intuitive test directives and test scripts in Ada
  • Test support package automatic global data checking
  • Exception verification
  • Stubbing simulation of ‘separate’ subunits
  • Call sequence validation
  • State transition testing
  • Real-time performance analysis
  • Automated regression testing
  • Integrated code coverage and static metric checking


AdaTEST 95 allows you to test the interfaces between Ada packages and on test groups of packages which are just not viable for isolation unit testing. AdaTEST 95 provides the following for integration testing:

  • Automated checking of results
  • Black and white box techniques combined
  • Selectable and programmable stubs
  • Call sequence validation
  • User observation tests
  • State transition tests
  • Multi-threaded test execution
  • Real-time performance analysis
  • Automated regression testing
  • Integrated code coverage and static metric checking

“Cantata allows us to test against requirements in a structured way and gives us the confidence that we have not missed anything. Writing code and getting it to execute is one thing, but that is not the main job. The real job is to prove every­thing.”

Johnny Johansson, Global Validation & Verification Tools Manager, SAAB

“I feel this is a better tool than any other testing tools for DO-178B/C V & V activities.”

Prabhakar Patil, Deputy General Manager, AK Aerotek Software Centre Pvt Ltd

“The systematic use of Cantata has enabled us to have the shortest unit test phase possible with great efficiency in terms of cost.”

Philippe Lomazzi, Head of Software Development Meggitt
