TestTrack, developed by Seapine Software, provides a centralized suite of capabilities for managing requirements, defects/issues and testing throughout the software development cycle.[1] This suite tracks everything involved in the software development process from feature requests and requirements to design revisions and actual changes in the code.[2] It keeps track of what tests were done, what was tested, who performed the test and when, on what platform, under which configuration and in what language.[3] TestTrack offers the ability to create, manage, and link artifacts from the beginning through the end of a design and development project[4] providing end-to-end traceability of all development artifacts[5] and giving managers a better handle on the shifting requirements that define their projects.[6] TestTrack enforces regulatory compliance to meet regulatory compliance requirements, including 21 CFR Part 11 and Sarbanes-Oxley.[5]

Architecture

TestTrack has a client–server architecture. The server manages a central database of requirements, test cases, testing evidence, defects, feature requests, work items, test configurations, users, and security group. The client and server communicate via a TCP/IP connection using 512-bit encryption.[7]

Server

TestTrack stores data in a variety of relational database management systems including SQL Server, Oracle, and Postgres.[8]

Clients

There are several different categories of TestTrack clients: GUI, Web UI, SOAP, and plugin.

The cross-platform GUI client is developed with Qt and available on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.[9] It fully supports all end-user operations and administration operations.

The unified web application allows software developers and testers to create and review requirements, work with issues, and execute and track tests from their web browser.[10]

TestTrack's SOAP SDK allows language and platform independent way to extend built-in functionality by writing applications that access and manipulate TestTrack data.[11]

The plugin interfaces integrate with popular IDEs to perform functionality, such as closing a defect or manually assign a work item to another team member, from the third-party applications.[2] TestTrack plugins are available for Eclipse, Visual Studio, Outlook, Excel, and QA Wizard. TestTrack also integrates with various SCM tools including Git, CVS, Perforce, Subversion, Surround SCM, and SourceSafe.[12]
