Function Verification Test Overview

Function Verification Test (FVT) means to test the functionality of the object (in this case, the different video device drivers), using single- tasking, single-threaded applications, which use combinations of supported system Application Programming Interface (API) functions. The use of these APIs in combination with other APIs should create a functioning "mini" application (applet), which will exercise the functionality of the object under test and optionally generate a log file to be examined at a later time for proper return codes and overall program functionality. No other applications should run on the system concurrently.

A sample of FVT applets have been included on the CD-ROM, and are located in:

    ..\testcert\display\function

Some FVT applets were not included on the CD-ROM. They are available on CompuServe**. After downloading the applets, place them on the hard disk according to the path structure provided by the test cases.

The following describes the targeted scope of test coverage provided by the FVT test cases during the execution of a test plan.

System Verification Test Overview

System Verification Test (SVT) is a full function, full hardware environment test to utilize video device drivers. In Function Verification Test (FVT), only one application is run on OS/2, while in SVT, multiple applications are run simultaneously, which exercise the video device driver functions. Stress and cross product interaction are used to stress the video device drivers, by running combinations of existing industry applications (such as those used in FVT), product applets, system test developed applets, and SVT test cases, which will produce a multi-threaded multi-tasking use of the video device drivers.

Knowledge of several unique and a few odd terms are necessary for a proper understanding of the SVT process. These include:

Preconditioner 
Any other process run prior to a test to provide a certain stress or otherwise condition to the system environment.
Script 
A textual input script or 'program' for a test tool.
Scenario 
A type of test - several 'variations' on the scenario may exist (i .e., running different preconditioners).
Testcase 
For SVT, a test case consists of a specific variation on a specific scenario run on a specific Device Under Test (DUT).
Variation 
A slightly different version of a scenario. Typically, each scenario will have several variations, each running different preconditioners.

FVT Test Cases

This section describes how to run different test suites for function verification test.

Since OS/2* can support applications written for DOS, Windows**, and OS/2, three types of FVT test cases must be run to properly test the different modes.

Several test cases have been included on the CD-ROM. These tests call FVT applications with proper syntax and parameters. These test cases are located in:

     ..\testcert\display\function\testcase

Some of the test cases assume working knowledge of applications, which are shipped with OS/2, such as the Win-OS/2 Clock. For information on usage of these programs, refer to the OS/2 User's Guide.

The following test suites are included on the CD-ROM:

VDM Test Suite

Testing Video Device Drivers Using AutoCAD Release 10 c-14

AutoCAD is a general purpose Computer Aided Design (CAD) program. Use AutoCAD to create a variety of two-dimensional drawings and three- dimensional models. Drawings prepared with AutoCAD are stored in data files that contain information about locations, sizes, colors, and attributes of objects you draw. These data files can be easily retrieved for viewing, editing, or plotting.

AutoCAD provides simple commands (such as "circle" and "line") to let you construct your drawing. The program also prompts you for information it needs to place an object at a specific location in the drawing. Commands are also provided to edit drawings and to view objects from different perspectives.

The OS/2 version of AutoCAD is designed to work with the window-based graphics interface of the Presentation Manager.

System Requirements

OS/2 (version 1.1 or later with Presentation Manager)
At least 4 megabytes of memory (6MB is recommended)
An Intel** 80387 Numeric Coprocessor.
A mouse is strongly recommended (but not required).

Conventions

Throughout this scenario, keys to be entered are denoted by brackets ([ ]) , such as [F9], [Ctrl+PgDn].
Cursor keys are denoted by [Up], [Down], [Left] and [Right].
A string of characters is denoted by quotations (" "), such as "CD\FP" and "C: \FIRST".
Any typographical mistakes can be fixed with the Backspace key.
If the instructions state to selectan item, move the cursor to that item and press [Enter].
When asked to select an item such as menu | item, click on each item in left to right order.
