Unit Testing with CodeWarrior

These pages are about how to do unit testing with CodeWarrior with cppUnit v1.8.
You can read more about cppUnit and Unit Testing at http://xprogramming.com/software.htm

To get the standard cppUnit distribution going with CodeWarrior (tested with Pro8)

  • Create a CodeWarrior SIOUX project
  • add a user level path to root cppunit directory, the one containing src
  • check the Always Search User Paths and Interpret DOS and Unix Paths boxes
  • go down to the Linker panel and turn off Dead-strip Static Initialization Code
    (so your tests will register)
  • drag in the src/cppunit folder, removing DllMain.cpp
  • To test CPPUnit itself and demonstrate it working.
    drag in examples/cppunittest folder and remove CppUnitTestMain.cpp

Download cppUnit and working CodeWarrior unit tests including string tests from http://www.oofile.com.au/downloads.html
