Visual Studio Extension for Diagnostic Sequence Authoring
The Visual Studio extension provides a professional development environment for diagnostic sequence authoring using the Vector Diagnostics Scripting (VDS) Library in C#.
It provides support for different project types: pure VDS projects (CDD/ODX-based diagnostics), OBD projects and vFlash custom actions (pre-/post-programming scripts).
Configuration of CANdelaStudio databases (CDD) and ODX/PDX-containers for IntelliSense and debugging
IntelliSense for ECU qualifiers, request qualifiers, parameters and parameter values
Code Analyzers for applying best practices (qualifier correctness, data conversions, memory management)
Debugging of diagnostic sequences using Vector hardware (e.g. VN16xx) or Virtual CAN even against real ECUs or vehicles + Debugging features integrated in Microsoft Visual Studio® like Breakpoints, Watch Window, …
Special Diagnostic Trace window for analysis of bus communication
Creation of Indigo Pack&Go for instant usage in Vector Indigo and optional download to vScriptDiagnostics for standalone execution of sequences on the Vector VN8810
Extensive test-framework for diagnostic sequences with support for MSTest, NUnit and XUnit
Mocking-framework to inject faults (e.g. communication error) and test the robustness of the code
And much more!
