Detailed Description

Generic test runner.

The TestRunner assumes ownership of all added tests: you can not add test or suite that are local variable since they can't be deleted.

Example of usage:

 #include <cppunit/extensions/TestFactoryRegistry.h>
 #include <cppunit/CompilerOutputter.h>
 #include <cppunit/TestResult.h>
 #include <cppunit/TestResultCollector.h>
 #include <cppunit/TestRunner.h>
 #include <cppunit/TextTestProgressListener.h>
 main( int argc, char* argv[] )
   std::string testPath = (argc > 1) ? std::string(argv[1]) : "";
   // Create the event manager and test controller
   CppUnit::TestResult controller;
   // Add a listener that colllects test result
   CppUnit::TestResultCollector result;
   controller.addListener( &result );        
   // Add a listener that print dots as test run.
   CppUnit::TextTestProgressListener progress;
   controller.addListener( &progress );      
   // Add the top suite to the test runner
   CppUnit::TestRunner runner;
   runner.addTest( CppUnit::TestFactoryRegistry::getRegistry().makeTest() );   
     std::cout << "Running "  <<  testPath;
     runner.run( controller, testPath );
     std::cerr << std::endl;
     // Print test in a compiler compatible format.
     CppUnit::CompilerOutputter outputter( &result, std::cerr );
   catch ( std::invalid_argument &e )  // Test path not resolved
     std::cerr  <<  std::endl  
                <<  "ERROR: "  <<  e.what()
                << std::endl;
     return 0;
   return result.wasSuccessful() ? 0 : 1;
