One Line Unit Test

Added a nice macro to the metawrap testing framework that allows a simple unit test to be put in one line in C and  C++ with exception handling and failover reporting.

void Tests_MwNativeString()
    #define MW_UNIT MwNativeString 
    MwNativeString l_string;
    MW_UNIT_TEST_ASSERT(Constructor1,l_string.emptystring(),Ensure that constructor starts with an empty string“);
    MwNativeString l_string2(“Hello”);
    MW_UNIT_TEST_ASSERT(Constructor2,“Hello”),Ensure that constructor populates.“);
    #undef MW_UNIT

Nice and simple. The individual unit test is not segregated from others – so it would not be wise to rely on the results of testcases.

Good articles on “Good OO Design” are rare. This is one of them.
