Summary

The Google Test support for VxWorks® 7 allows you to run your tests written with the Google Test framework on your VxWorks runtime. It provides a VxWorks layer that may be used to integrate https://github.com/google/googletest as a static library. This static library may be linked to downloadable kernel modules (DKMs) or real-time processes (RTPs) to support testing your applications.

Some of the features of googletest, as listed in the documentation, include:

  • An xUnit test framework
  • Test discovery
  • A rich set of assertions
  • User-defined assertions
  • Death tests
  • Fatal and non-fatal failures
  • Value-parameterized tests
  • Type-parameterized tests
  • Various options for running the tests
  • XML test report generation
