About this site
Welcome - This site is TestApe.com. Most likely you arrived here for one of the reasons
The TestApe unit test framework is a multi platform simplistic test system available for embedded software
written in C. It is shareware and anyone can use it.
Mocking functions is completely automatic with the supplied instrumenter. Each test decides what mock functions
to use. Mock functions can be shared between tests. By passing mock parameters to them it is possible for them
to support several tests. Mock functions are optional - if not used default mocks are supplied automatically,
and each test can decide the return value they should provide to the unit.
Simple default mocks will be generated for those functions that are not present in the unit. The instrumenter
will therefore produce a test executable from any combination of source, object or library files.
Manual stub functions are possible, but they are not required.
The tests can be written to run with small variations using TestApe test parameters, e.g. number ranges
or lists of interesting values. These parameters are then available to the test code in nested tests or in mocks.
Documentation and packages for GCC/Linux (arm/i386), GCC/MinGW-w64 or Visual studio/Windows are available for download.
The Ajax demo application made quite some furore when it was first released.
It seamlessly integrates data coming from a slow running Unix process into a
web page. To illustrate the usage TestApe.com hosts a demo page where everyone
can operate a bash terminal on a virtual server.
