Google Mock (GMock)

Google C++ Mocking Framework is a C++ library for writing and using C++ mock classes.

The main block is here, which is generated from this github repo.

GMock Examples

All GMock samples are available in biicode: GMock samples block .

You can execute all of them locally just creating a new project and opening the block:

~$ bii init gmock_sample
~$ cd gmock_sample
~/gmock_sample$ bii open google/gmocksamples
~/gmock_sample$ bii build
~/gmock_sample$ #execute any example

Mocking a simple function

Let's run an example based in Google C++ Mocking Framework for Dummies sample. You can execute it locally just creating a new project and opening the block: GMock example block .

~$ bii init samples
~$ cd samples
~/samples$ bii open examples/gmock
~/samples$ bii build
~/samples$ bin/examples_gmock_test_mock_turtle_test
     [==========] Running 1 test from 1 test case.
     [----------] Global test environment set-up.
     [----------] 1 test from PainterTest
     [ RUN      ] PainterTest.CanDrawSomething
     [       OK ] PainterTest.CanDrawSomething (0 ms)
     [----------] 1 test from PainterTest (0 ms total)

     [----------] Global test environment tear-down
     [==========] 1 test from 1 test case ran. (2 ms total)
     [  PASSED  ] 1 test.

Here is the main code used in this example, you can navigate it on-line here: GMock example block .


#pragma once

class Turtle {


  virtual ~Turtle() {}
  virtual void PenUp() = 0;
  virtual void PenDown() = 0;
  virtual void Forward(int distance) = 0;
  virtual void Turn(int degrees) = 0;
  virtual void GoTo(int x, int y) = 0;
  virtual int GetX() const = 0;
  virtual int GetY() const = 0;



#pragma once
#include "turtle.h"

class Painter
        Turtle* turtle;
        Painter( Turtle* turtle )
                :       turtle(turtle){}

        bool DrawCircle(int, int, int){
                return true;


#pragma once

#include "turtle.h"
#include "google/gmock/gmock.h"  // Brings in Google Mock

class MockTurtle : public Turtle {

  MOCK_METHOD0(PenUp, void());
  MOCK_METHOD0(PenDown, void());
  MOCK_METHOD1(Forward, void(int distance));
  MOCK_METHOD1(Turn, void(int degrees));
  MOCK_METHOD2(GoTo, void(int x, int y));
  MOCK_CONST_METHOD0(GetX, int());
  MOCK_CONST_METHOD0(GetY, int());

#include "../mock_turtle.h"
#include "../painter.h"

#include "google/gtest/gtest.h"

using ::testing::AtLeast;
TEST(PainterTest, CanDrawSomething) {
  MockTurtle turtle;
  EXPECT_CALL(turtle, PenDown())

  Painter painter(&turtle);

  EXPECT_TRUE(painter.DrawCircle(0, 0, 10));

int main(int argc, char** argv) {
  // The following line must be executed to initialize Google Mock
  // (and Google Test) before running the tests.
  ::testing::InitGoogleMock(&argc, argv);
  return RUN_ALL_TESTS();

You can aggregate as many tests as you want and verify all the methods actions, returns, calls, etc.
