A functional testing and evaluation technique is provided employing an abstraction matrix that describes a complex software component to be tested. The abstraction matrix includes at least one test case scenario and mapped expected results therefore. Test cases are derived from the at least one test case scenario and used to test the software component, thereby generating test results. The test results are automatically evaluated using the abstraction matrix. The evaluating includes comparing a test case to the at least one test case scenario of the abstraction matrix and if a match is found, comparing the test result for that test case with the mapped expected result therefore in the abstraction matrix.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
