All function calls to function are considered valid, and they will be redirected to mock for the duration of the test. parameter is an optional parameter for the mock function. If not given, the default value is zero.
The mock will typical implement validation of the parameters, but it can also execute tests.
In order for the mock to validate the parameters, it is important that the mock has the same function prototype as the function it replaces. The return value of mock is passed back to the unit as the return value of function. The unit is unaware, that it is actually calling a mock function.
While mock is executing it is possible for the mock function to call function. Function calls made from an active mock do not apply to any of the rulessetup by by ALLOW or EXPECT. If function are not present in unit the default mock will be called. The default mock will return 0.
ALLOW_MOCK can be used together with EXPECT macros. If these are used with same function in the same test (or in a test executed from the test), the validation of function calls, setup with these macros, will take precedence until all of the expected function calls has been validated. ALLOW_MOCK is valid for the duration of the test. If the test calls other tests, the macro will remain in scope also for these tests.
ALLOW_MOCK on function will override any earlier allow macros on that function.
It has been a long time since last official release and the list of bugfixes, features and supported platforms accumulating in the beta has grown substantially. I am happy to annouce that a new release is ready.more
New beta version is now available for download.more
New is this release are support for floating point validations and function mocking. Also, MinGW has been added to the list of supported platforms.more
TestApe forum is now hosted on Proboards. Support questions can be posted here or send directly on email. Due to ...more
TestApe can now be used with MinGW GCC on windows. Also supported in this beta are floating point types in validations or when mocking functionsmore
A small fix for webtty scripts, to allow the usage from Apple IPads. Tab on textarea to bring up IPad keyboard - you may have to scroll webpage beneath keyboard, in order to actually see what you're typing.
This release contains a new flexible mocking system with default mocks automatically generated for unresolved functions. Installation packages are available for GCC/Linux, GCC/CygWin as well Visual Studio 2009/Windows XP or Vista.more
