Line 1: Line 1:
 +Unit tests are useful to call code in isolation during development (so you don't need to start the entire GUI to test every change), and for regression tests.
  
 +
 +
 +A couple of unit tests for Rosegarden have been written in src/test.
 +
 +
 +
 +== Building ==
 +
 +
 +
 +Enable WANT_TEST in ccmake and build the codebase as usual
 +
 +
 +
 +== Running ==
 +
 +
 +
 +Run 'make test'
 +
 +
 +
 +== Creating new unit tests ==
 +
 +
 +
 +  * write tests in src/​test/​foo.cpp
 +
 +  * define an 'int test_foo(int argc, char** argv)'​. This method will be called by the test driver, which will report '​Success'​ if the call returned '​0'​. If you put multiple tests in one file, this will looks something like '​return test1() + test2() + test3()',​ where all other tests should also return 0 on success or a positive integer on failure.
 +
 +  * add to src/​TestFileList.txt
 +
 +  * Enjoy :)
