BroadBit offers the power and efficiency of TTCN testing for the IT and Telecom industry! Release 1 of BroadBit Test Tool (BTT) is published as a free software; enabling all software test engineers to add it into their toolbox.
- Support of basic TTCN-3 syntax for test control (note: the tool’s template definitions are not TTCN compliant, but are entered through XML syntax or ASN.1 value/constraint syntax)
- Support of both tabular and ASN.1 based protocol definitions
- Easy mapping between port definitions and port handlers
- Port handlers included for generic sockets, such as Ethernet, UDP, or Unix sockets.
- Message filtering capability, based on either log-file processing or live interface capture.
- Easy generation of ASN.1 test messages or sequence of test messages
- Several operating modes: live testing, scheduled operation, or off-line validation of captured log
- HTML visualization or CSV export of test data
- Platform independent, open source
BTT is a comprehensive TTCN tool for conformance and protocol testing. It supports both Binary and ASN.1 layers! (ASN.1 handling builds upon Objective Systems’ asn1c tool)
BTT has been tested on Linux, OpenSolaris, Windows, and OSX (Snow Leopard) operating systems.
Anthony Wiles’ introductory words about TTCN from ‘An Introduction to TTCN-3′ book:
TTCN ﬁrst saw the light of day as a ﬂedgling language in the mid-1980s. Since then, it has arguably progressed to be the de facto standardized language for writing test speciﬁcations. Here at ETSI, TTCN is the cornerstone of many complex test speciﬁcations, covering a wide range of technologies, including GSM, UMTS, VoIP, ISDN, WiFi, and cordless telephony (DECT) … The essence of TTCN-3 is really quite simple, which partly explains its increasing popularity.
