Wednesday, February 12 - RAD in Action webinars "Unit Testing in Delphi" with Nick Hodges

Posted by on in Blogs
Next Wednesday, Nick Hodges, Embarcadero MVP and author of the new book, "Coding in Delphi", will present "RAD in Action: Unit Testing in Delphi" in 3 live online sessions.

Date: Wednesday, February 12, 2014


  • 6AM San Francisco / 9AM New York / 2PM London / 3PM Milan

  • 11AM San Francisco / 2PM New York / 7PM London / 8PM Milan

  • 5PM San Francisco / 13-Feb 10AM Tokyo / 13-Feb 12PM Sydney

Without unit tests your code is fragile, hard to change, and unreliable. Unit testing is the only way that you can be sure that your code does what it is supposed to do. In this webinar, Nick discusses the basics of Unit Testing as well as providing a demo that illustrates the points at hand using the new DUnitX framework. This will lead to a discussion of stubs and mocks, and the use of the DelphiMocks framework to ensure that all your classes are tested in isolation.

Topics covered

  • What is Unit Testing?

  • Why you should be doing Unit Testing

  • Proper unit testing techniques including covering the "middle of the plate", the "outside corners" as well as checking exceptions

  • A specific use case for unit testing using a real world example

    I saw this webinar, and I asked there if we can use the Unit Testing framewokr in C++, I didn't find a lot of information about the unit testing in c++builder, can you recommed some source, in special examples with some real world application?

    Arnulfo - C++ unit testing is definitely supported. In RAD Studio/C++Builder IDE - choose File | New | Other ... Then choose the "Unit Test" category and choose "Test Project". This will bring up a wizard to specify the project details. One of the choices on the wizard is the "Personality" - choose Delphi or C++. Then you can go back and choose to add "Test Case(s)" using File | New | Other... and choose the "Test Case" from the "Unit Test" category and proceed from there.

    There are some articles to help you - one for C++Builder 2007 but the same steps and unit test support are in later versions -

    Additional Unit Test info is available on our DocWiki at

    If you need more rigorous testing for C++Builder projects - check out TestComplete from SmartBear Software -
