Sun Microsystems is a worldwide company that produces a wide variety of products. Sun desires to produce robust, reliable software that has been thoroughly tested to meet its design requirements. In large projects, however, the huge number of continually changing requirements makes coverage tracking nearly impossible. Sun wanted to research the possibility of a tool that will not only make the process of linking test cases to requirements easier, but will also easily show the coverage data of requirements and test cases. This functionality would allow Sun to effectively manage resources and guarantee that the most important requirements are tested.

While Sun initially wanted to have a tool that would only solve the requirement tracking problem for OpenOffice documents, they required that the program be designed in such a way that it would be possible to extend it for additional applications and tasks. The tool allows the user to mark text of a document as a requirement and to associate that requirement with test cases. The software was implemented in Java.
