CxxTest is a unit testing framework for C++ that is similar in
spirit to JUnit, CppUnit, and xUnit. CxxTest is easy to use because
it does not require precompiling a CxxTest testing library, it
employs no advanced features of C++ (e.g. RTTI) and it supports a
very flexible form of test discovery.

CxxTest is available under the GNU Lesser General Public Licence (LGPL).

A user guide is available in doc/guide.pdf.

A Simple Example

1. Create a test suite header file:

  #include <cxxtest/TestSuite.h>

  class MyTestSuite : public CxxTest::TestSuite 
      void testAddition( void )
          TS_ASSERT( 1 + 1 > 1 );
          TS_ASSERT_EQUALS( 1 + 1, 2 );

2. Generate the tests file:

 # cxxtestgen --error-printer -o tests.cpp MyTestSuite.h

3. Compile and run!

  # g++ -o main tests.cpp
  # ./main
  Running 1 test(s).OK!
