Bradenton, FL-- 12 APR 1994: Onyx Technology releases QC, the Macintosh Stress Testing Solution. QCs powerful tests can quickly isolate problems in application software and code resources that would otherwise randomly crash or hang under different Macintosh configurations. These tests can be performed by non-technical personnel with little or no knowledge of Macintosh programming. Software engineers can take advantage of a custom API to achieve pinpoint control from directly within their code. QC gives developers and Quality Control personnel an extensive tool for stress testing their application software before its shipped.
The software is composed of a System Extension and a Control Panel that are available for testing all application software. QC monitors application code for memory related errors performing common tests such as heap scrambling, purging, and validation quickly and easily. QC goes further to perform Block Bounds checking, Block Move validation, Grow Lock testing, total free memory invalidation, and many more powerful tests not available in any other tool. By performing tests that quickly stress an application without regard for what Mac hardware is in use, how much memory is available, or what System Software configuration is in use, QC can save time and money through the entire development process. Quality Control personnel can automatically test multiple applications from a predefined launch list. They can perform heap operations on application and system heaps simultaneously. All settings are application specific - users can quickly test multiple programs with different test settings either automatically or by hitting a single hot key.
Software engineers can control all aspects of testing from within their own code using a complete application programming interface (API). Using the API they can set and perform specific tests and create test suites. API libraries and interfaces are available for C and C++, using the MPW and Think environments.
QC runs on all Macintosh models with System Software version 7.0 or later. Balloon help, 32-bit addressing, and Virtual Memory are supported. QC is compatible with the new PowerPC based Macintosh systems. A native PowerPC version will be released later this year as a free upgrade to existing users. A free, fully featured time-out demo is available on America Online, AppleLink, and CompuServe - contact Onyx via email for more information. Pricing is $99.95 plus $5.00 shipping and handling (within continental United States) with discounts for multi pack orders.
