Modernize Your COBOL Testing Processes with Compuware and SonarSource

Presented by

Olivier Gaudin, CEO, SonarSource

About this talk

Compuware and Sonar Source are working together to change how application quality is addressed on the mainframe. Learn how an integration between Compuware Topaz, Compuware ISPW and SonarSource gives you an accurate, unified view of unit testing code coverage and code quality metrics across all platforms. This will help you accelerate delivery, improve quality, increase maintainability and close your COBOL skills gap. SonarQube continuously analyzes source code for bugs, code smells and security vulnerabilities and displays the results along with other quality milestones in project dashboards for continuous code quality assessment. Working in conjunction with Jenkins, the SonarQube integration with Topaz for Total Test enables test pass/fail results to display within SonarQube for code quality analysis. Test metrics can be used in SonarQube Quality Gates to determine whether to proceed with a workflow or stop and fix code before continuing. The integration means organizations can build a mainframe CI pipeline that can be triggered automatically every time a developer promotes their code. That pipeline can automatically trigger unit tests and collect code coverage metrics that can be feed back into SonarQube to verify that the code meets the quality standards defined in the quality gate, before moving it higher into the lifecycle. It’s critical to have this type of quality gate in place so that you can manage code quality and get feedback to developers as soon as possible. During this webcast, you will learn how: •COBOL unit testing can be automated •COBOL code coverage shows what percentage of an application has been tested •Continuous Integration shortens feedback loops to speed time-to-benefit •Code quality can be managed consistently across platforms
