This topic introduces the C++test plugin into Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio 4.x, 5.x, and 6.0.
The C++test plugin integrates with the Code Composer Studio 4.x, 5.x, and 6.0 Eclipse IDE by means of the Eclipse plugin mechanism. C++test plugs into CCS IDE by adding a link file com.parasoft.xtest.cpptest.link into the Code Composer Studio installation directory. This link file contains the path to the C++test plugin, which informs Eclipse that the plugin should be loaded at startup.
For Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio 4.x, the following compiler/environment versions are supported:
For Texas Instruments Code Composer Studio 5.x, the following compiler/environment versions are supported:
Code Composer Studio v3 is also supported.See the following sections for details:
The following components are provided to facilitate testing Texas Instruments Code Composer projects:
Beginning with version 5.x, Texas Instruments is rebranding the "TI TMS470" compiler as the "TI ARM" compiler. For consistency and clarity, Parasoft has also updated the compiler acronym from
tiarm_4_9. This change directly affects any previous custom compiler configurations and/or previous project options that reference the old compiler acronym. As such, references to
titms470_4_9 should be changed to
Depending on the runtime testing features included in the test executable, the prepared test binary may be significantly larger than the original application. On some limited environments, there may be an issue with the amount of available program memory. A similar limitation applies to the additional consumption of heap and stack memory during program execution. To solve this problem, you may need to modify the program layout in the memory and change the size of available stack/heap.
