Key features

  • Easy to get started with:
    1. download and deflate the latest boost archive
    2. create a test module with this (header version):
      #define BOOST_TEST_MODULE your_test_module
      #include <boost/test/included/unit_test.hpp>
    3. done
  • powerful and unique test assertion macro BOOST_TEST, that understands floating points, collections, strings... and uses appropriate comparison paradigm
  • self-registering test cases, organize cases in test suites, apply fixtures on test cases, suites or globally
  • provide assertion context for advanced diagnostic on failure
  • powerful and extensible dataset tests
  • add decoration to test cases and suites for advanced description, group/label, and dependencies
  • powerful command line options and test case filters
  • extensible logging, XML and JUNIT outputs for third-party tools (eg. cont. integration)
  • various usage (shared/static library) for faster compilation/build cycles, smaller binaries
