Automation of Unit and System Tests. Tests can be implemented in any language and on many platforms. The flexible approach enables the inclusion of many types of tests, such as memory leak checks (using valgrind), coding rule checks, complexity checks, etc. Tests are run by a simple call to hwut in a base directory of a project.
In particular for C, HWUT supports make file generation using 'sos' and 'sols' modes. Remote control-able function stubs may be generated using the 'stub' mode. Test cases can be generated using the 'gen' mode, and state machine walkers by the 'sm_walker' mode.
Over the last decade HWUT has matured towards a full fledged unit test tool for a wide variety of applications.
- Generators -- create millions of test cases easily.
- State machine walker -- walk along all possible paths.
- Temporal logic engine.
- Coverage analysis with gcov/lcov.
great tool, easy to use, great features. have been using it for serval years in the automotive industry
