Description-en: Google's C++ test framework sources
This package provides sources for Google Test and Google Mock.
Google Test is a framework for writing C++ tests on a variety of
platforms. Based on the xUnit architecture. Supports automatic test
discovery, a rich set of assertions, user-defined assertions, death
tests, fatal and non-fatal failures, value- and type-parameterized
tests, various options for running the tests, and XML test report
Google Mock is an extension of Google Test for C++ mocking. Inspired
by jMock, EasyMock, and Hamcrest, and designed with C++'s specifics
in mind, it can help you derive better designs of your system and
write better tests.
Google Mock:
- provides a declarative syntax for defining mocks,
- can easily define partial (hybrid) mocks, which are a cross of real
and mock objects,
- handles functions of arbitrary types and overloaded functions,
- comes with a rich set of matchers for validating function arguments,
- uses an intuitive syntax for controlling the behavior of a mock,
- does automatic verification of expectations (no record-and-replay
- allows arbitrary (partial) ordering constraints on
function calls to be expressed,
- lets a user extend it by defining new matchers and actions.
- does not use exceptions, and
- is easy to learn and use.
NOTE: This package does not contain a library to link against, but rather
the source code to build the google test and mock libraries. This enables
building the google test and mock libraries with the same flags as the
C++ code under test.
