Getting started with testIDEA

This tutorial introduces our integrated testing environment testIDEA. It focuses on the basics:

  • starting with the creation of simple unit tests,
  • increasing the complexity to include testing of C++ constructors and methods and state-machines,
  • importing test vectors created in Excel into testIDEA and
  • measuring code coverage, even when the target microcontroller is missing the required hardware trace functionality.

We provide an example of how testIDEA can be used to export a suite of tests as a Python script, allowing Continuous Integration (CI) tools such as Jenkins and Bamboo to automate testing and evaluation of test results.
