Getting started with googletest – the Google C++ Testing Framework

So, I’ve just recorded a second screencast at screenr, this time about googletest – the Google C++ Testing Framework. I had a couple of issues getting things up and running so I thought it might be beneficial to show I got going.

I’ve been more used to unit testing in a C# environment, particularly NUnit and MS Unit, so googletest was a fresh look at unit testing for C++. Note that the screenr title is incorrect, it should read ‘Getting started with googletest – the Google C++ Testing Framework 🙂

  1. Can you expand on this? I tried following it, got a lot of linker and missing symbol errors, and when I finally got the project to build and run, I got a blank window. I’m trying this with the 2010 express version of VCPP.

    Thanks

  2. Actually, I figured it out. I thought my runtime libraries were set to the same thing, but they were slightly different. Thanks for posting this video.
