Abstract

Generally in software Generally in software development, there is a need to link the development work products with each other i.e., requirements with the corresponding design artefacts, to the resulting software and associated test cases. This enables, for instance, the efficient change impact analysis and reporting facilities during the different phases of the software development life cycle. Establishing and maintaining these links manually is a laborious and error prone task, so tool support is needed. This paper describes a configurable tool integration solution (the Merlin ToolChain) that integrates project management, requirements management, configuration management and testing tools. The paper introduces the architecture of the ToolChain as well as describes the development and validation activities carried out. Experiences from real life industrial case showed that the ToolChain works and is useful in collaborative software development.
