Detailed Description

Base class for all test objects.

All test objects should be a subclass of Test. Some test objects, TestCase for example, represent one individual test. Other test objects, such as TestSuite, are comprised of several tests.

When a Test is run, the result is collected by a TestResult object.

Member Function Documentation

virtual int CppUnit::Test::countTestCases   const [pure virtual]

Return the number of test cases invoked by run().

The base unit of testing is the class TestCase. This method returns the number of TestCase objects invoked by the run() method.

virtual std::string CppUnit::Test::getName   const [pure virtual]

Returns the test name.

Each test has a name. This name may be used to find the test in a suite or registry of tests.

Implemented in CppUnit::TestDecorator.

virtual void CppUnit::Test::run TestResult   result [pure virtual]

Run the test, collecting results.

Implemented in CppUnit::RepeatedTest.

virtual std::string CppUnit::Test::toString   const [pure virtual]

Description of the test, for diagnostic output.

The test description will typically include the test name, but may have additional description. For example, a test suite named complex_add may be described as suite complex_add.
