Abstract: As the size of the software increases, or becomes larger and larger, the complexity of the software will be bigger and bigger. At present, usually more than 70 percents of the time the software cycle has spent on debugging and maintenance. Debugging is the process of removing the bug or error in the program if any, and maintenance is the keeping of the computer systems to the best function. Thus, the tool for debugging is the utmost important in the computer system as accuracy is required at all times. Unit testing is the stage of system development immediately after coding, during which system components are being checked in isolation from other system components to see if these components meet the specifications as defined in the design. Since a program module is not a stand-alone or single program, Driver Software must be developed for each unit test. A Test Driver (Driver Software) is just a main program that accepts test case data and passes the data to the module to be tested, and collects relevant results. Therefore, a Test Driver is the control program for testing. It co-ordinates test case input and output. In this project, we develop a Test Driver Generator, which is both computer language and machine independent. Any version of any computer language in any operating system and any hardware platform can use this Test Driver Generator to generate their test drivers for their Source files under the condition that suitable Rule file should be used. This means that the users can easily generate their Test Drivers for any Source files for any computer language with this Test Driver Generator. It is hoped that this generic Test Driver Generator could save the time for the users in developing a Test Driver.
