Hamburg, Germany – 2012-02-21 froglogic GmbH today announced its release of Squish Coco, a complete C and C++ code coverage tool chain for Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Unix.
Squish Coco is based on the mature and widely used tools developed for the TestCocoon project. froglogic has also hired TestCocoon’s initiator and lead programmer to ensure continuity and quality for Squish Coco’s ongoing development. And, of course, Squish Coco is backed by a strong and reliable vendor renowned for its excellent support.
« Code coverage is one of the most requested features that Squish GUI Tester users ask for. This isn’t surprising since code coverage analysis makes it possible to highly optimize testing and to measure the quality of the test campaign. So we are really excited to be able to offer Squish Coco as a new addition to our Squish test automation tools. »—Harri Porten, froglogic’s CTO and co-CEO.
« In order to ensure the quality of our own products, we have implemented a high degree of build and test automation into our development processes. Over the years we looked at a wide range of code coverage tools searching for one that would help provide continued analysis and optimization of our testing. The only tool that met all our requirements was TestCocoon—now available as the fully supported Squish Coco. Given our long search and stringent requirements I am confident that this mature and powerful tool will be welcomed by our customers »—Rainer Schmid, froglogic’s automation lead.

About Squish Coco
Squish Coco is a complete code coverage tool chain for C and C++ applications that can run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Unix. Squish Coco provides a wrapper for standard compilers (including GCC and Visual Studio) that instruments the source code that the compiler sees (without touching the original code). If the instrumented application’s test suite is run the application will report all kinds of useful information, including:
- Dead (never executed) code.
- Optimal test execution order so as to maximize the overall test coverage for each run.
- Redundant tests.
- Untested code.
In addition, Squish Coco can compare two different versions of an application (e.g., current and candidate releases) to see what effects their differences have on their tests and test coverage.
Squish Coco can be used at every stage of testing and in conjunction with every kind of testing method (unit tests, automated tests, manual tests, etc.), and can collect and merge different tests’ execution reports to support advanced analysis.
Squish Coco consists of two tools and an optional add-on:
- CoverageScanner—this tool analyzes and instruments C and C++ applications.
- CoverageBrowser—this tool provides an easy to use GUI which can manage and display the coverage analysis results.
- An optional Microsoft Visual Studio add-on, which can generate code coverage configurations for C and C++ projects directly from inside the Visual Studio IDE.
Squish Coco supports the following kinds of coverage:
- Condition coverage
- Condition/decision coverage
- Decision coverage
- Function coverage
- Statement coverage
