Unit tests in c++

Now that I’m using c++ again, I’m getting interested in unit tests, of course. But a little research showed me that there has been some reluctance to unity tests in the community, primarily due to the lack of reflection in unmanaged code.

Since unit testing is so awesome, it hasn’t been entirely overlooked, luckily. First I found an interesting question on this at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3159
There’s a good overview of a bunch of different tools there.

I also read a good article by Michael Feather. http://objectmentor.com/resources/ articles/TheHumbleDialogBox.pdf
He explains why we need to separate the smart objects so we can communicate with them. Cool!

I’m also downloading some unit test plugin for Visual Studio. I’ll let you know how that goes!
