Continued from previous, Now suppose you have a shared library by the name which consists of functions like sum and diff. Notes and samples for CUnit test framework for C. To test with C Unit, you create a C program that, when run, tests your code and displays the. First, we need to install CUnit libraries. I use Ubuntu, so all that I had to do was # apt-get install libcunit1 libcunit1-doc libcunit1-dev.

The assertions defined by CUnit are: In the terminal, type the commands shown in bold: External Tools and Services. The if statement in the generated test sets the condition to be true by setting it to 1, so the test always fails when you run it unmodified.

Unit Testing Tutorial: What is, Types, Tools, EXAMPLE

C Unit Testing Framework project on sourceforge. You can install CUnit by selecting it in the Libs category in the setup program.

In the Projects window, open the Source Files folder and double-click the main. The instructions below assume you downloaded the file CUnit The message option enables you to make the tutorjal print out a message about the test failure.

The success or failure of these assertions is tracked by the framework, and can be viewed when a test run is complete. The objective of Unit Testing is to isolate a section of code and verify its correctness. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.


A unit test framework is used in tutoriql to create automated unit tests.

What is Embedded Software Testing? The tutorial does not explain the CUnit or CppUnit testing frameworks. In this tutorial, you will learn- What is Unit Testing?

CUnit – Writing CUnit Test Cases

The tool also allows developers to use pre-define assertion methods to assert that a system behave in a certain manner. In this program, there is only one other function, factorial. Version 7 or 8. These instructions assume you downloaded the file CUnit To explore the unit test features, you should first create a new C Application: The CUnit package is located in the “Libs” category and you can install it in the same way you install other packages.

Depending on the severity of a failure, the framework may halt subsequent testing. It allows mocking API with recording and verification syntax. Here are the commands I ran, and the output:.

tutorlal Run the test to see that it generates a failure shown in the Test Results window. Notice that the Test Results window is split into two panels.

You need to consult xunit documentation for those frameworks for information about how to use them. Note I didn’t include the examples or ncurses options; I tried them at first but couldn’t get it to work under Cygwin. These assertions will be counted for the calling function. Click OK in each dialog to save the change. After much “Googling”, the only ones I have come across are the Tuyorial documentation on sourceforge and this one.


Unit Testing Advantage Developers looking to learn what functionality is provided tutoriaal a unit and how to use it can look at the unit tests to gain a basic understanding of the unit API. For example, you might have a function that needs variables or objects that are not created yet.

If you have any errors, rerun Cygwin’s setup. In the Projects window, right-click the main. A test function may call other functions which also may not modify the framework. You can create tests directly under this Test Files folder or organize them in logical sub folders.

Configure the Makefile with the following command. Accept the defaults for all other options. When a test is built, it will exclude the main file from the project and otherwise use all other project settings.
