Start: 01.07.2017

For the Airbus DS satellites the on-board software is developed by the on-board software development team. This team is structured into a production team which provides the flight code in C and a test team which performs the validation tests of the flight code. The validation is performed with a test framework made of java code.

The test framework has grown over time with the effect that some of the tests have reached a complexity which makes it difficult to extend and maintain them. The heritage of several years may have introduced code quality issues.
The goal is to refactor the java code of the test framework. A similar project has been performed to refactor the java code of a different code base. The results of this projects shall be taken into account. A transformation plan shall be setup and executed to remove the found deficiencies:
- identify issues
- plan refactoring
- identify factors to measure the before and after state
- execute the refactoring, e.g. split tests, improve java class architecture (class independence, maintainability),
improve runtime of the java test cases and error "pin-pointing", model the framework in UML
- demonstrate that the new code base provides comparable results as the original code
- provide an abstract to guide developers and integrators for maintenance of the refactored framework
