With RECITAL test cases are independently replayed.
Only the data that are used by the tested programs are captured : they are sufficient for the replay of the test cases.
During replay, “capping” modules replace the interface modules called by the tested application.
The tool fully monitors the replay.
Neither functional nor technical evolutions of the external context impact the test cases.
Replay does not rely on the availability of other applications nor of external flows.
Testing addresses only the parts of the application that have evolved : programs and procedures.
Test cases can be kept and maintained.
