Well written unit tests are a great way to ensure the correctness of software components, document their public APIs and facilitate the refactoring of code bases. The most prominent features of EUnit – Erlang’s unit testing framework will be demonstrated by example. Time permitting we’ll also take a quick glance at “meck” – a mocking framework for Erlang.
Talk objectives: Show how Erlang software components can be unit tested in an effective and elegant fashion. Elucidate some of the more “esoteric” EUnit constructs.
Target audience: Software Developers
