Web Page for Embedded Unit

Embedded Unit (embUnit) is an unit test framework for embedded C systems. It now has a simple web page with manual. It is not pretty, but it is something.

Hi! I'm Ivan Muzzolini and I'm making experiments with EmbUnit. I've just took a look at your experiences and they are really impressing!
What kind of difficulties have you found in using EmbUnit with respect to stubbing/mockifying modules?

Thanks
Bye
Ivan

Hi Ivan! It is nice to hear that embUnit interests also you. It would be great to hear what kind of software you are developing and how succesfull you have been in unit testing it.

Regarding stubbing or using mock objects (modules/files) I think embUnit is not an issue. It is the fact that C is not so TDD friendly language itself. So you should use extra thought when using stubs, and especially mocks, because this can really increase the effort needed to keep your test harness up to date when the design emerges. So this is the one difficulty I have found; the discipline needed to keep the test harness up to date.

If you interested in getting the embUnit forward, do not hesitate to contribute!
