Software testing is one of the most important steps before its official roll–out to the market. Testing of embedded software is a very complex, tedious, and time–consuming process. Manual execution of the test cases can pose a huge challenge to the test engineers in terms of the time consumed to execute and compile the results of hundreds of test cases. This paper presents a solution to automate the entire process of build and install of Board Support Package (BSP) using Jenkins, along with the automation of the testing process using Linaro Automation and Validation Architecture (LAVA). The proposed design is validated in a BSP testing environment to show the ease of testing using the framework mentioned in this paper.
