I’m Mentor again this year in Google’s Summer of Code. I’m again mentoring a KDevelop4 project, the title is: xUnit test harness for KDevelop4.
Manuel Breugelmans was chosen do to the project, he’s a student at the university of Antwerp in Belgium. He’s a new developer in the Qt/KDE/KDevelop world, but has already quite good C++ skills. Apparently he also has quite some knowledge about unit testing as he’s writing a tool to analyze xUnit code and visualize it.
The project itself aims to provide some infrastructure to ease the creation and execution of tests within KDevelop4, the most important deliverables are stub test template creation, report and coverage framework and a graphical test runner. The current plan includes supporting QtTest, CppUnit, Check and PyUnit.
I’m confident this will be a success as Manuel has already dived into possible solutions for some things, including contacting authors of existing test-runner tools to talk about collaboration.
