The fact of the matter is, they are testing too much on JSF, and not testing enough. They test to see if the paint is blue enough, and don't do functional tests required to validate that the software does its job properly before flying it. The FAA's DO-178b software standards are nothing but a smoke screen of regulations that allow contractors to jack up the cost of software changes without increasing the reliability or safety of the software at all.

As it is, these standards are simply another way to defraud the US taxpayer.
