QuaSR: A Large-Scale Automated, Distributed Testing Environment

Steven Grady, G. S. Madhusudan, and Marc Sugiyama
Sybase, Inc.


The QuaSR project at Sybase, Inc. involves the creation of thousands of automated tests for Sybase, Inc.'s SQL Server, each implemented as an independent Tcl program. The resulting test suite, significantly more than a million lines of code, comprises the largest known Tcl code base. The test harness is written in [incr Tcl] and the test cases in Tcl. Tcl and [incr Tcl]'s extensibility, simplicity, and reliability have made them uniquely suited to the development of a sophisticated automated testing system.
