Tel Aviv, Israel, 2011/06/28 - Isolator++ For Linux Enables C++ developers on the Linux platforms to Isolate code and perform mocking easily – Typemock now providing Easy Unit Testing Solutions for Multiple Platforms – Windows .NET, C++ and Linux C++.
Typemock, the leading provider and pioneer of easy unit testing solutions announced today the launch of Isolator++ for Linux. Isolator++ for Linux enables easy unit testing of C++ on the Linux distributions, Ubuntu, Fedora (Red Hat) and SUSE (Novell). This release marks Typemock’s ability to offer unit testing tools and mocking frameworks for multiple platforms and enable organizations that work on Windows and Linux to benefit from one solution for both platforms.
Isolator++ for Linux enables unit testing – the foundation of agile development - of any C/ C++ code (including complex code such as statics, globals and non virtual method) by allowing the test to intercept and fake behaviours. The API is specifically designed to make tests more concise, more resistant to production code changes and easier to understand for new users which ensures that time is not wasted re-writing unit tests. It also protects the code from regression bugs and allows organizations to feel confident that their final product meets industry standards.
Isolator++ for Linux enables developers to fake any part of the code seamlessly, without the need to redesign for testability as opposed to other unit testing solutions that require many sections of code to be re-written in order to be testable. It replaces the need for manual validation with automatic C++ unit tests. This ensures full code integrity before the code reaches QA. The launch of Isolator++ for Linux demonstrates Typemock’s ability to now offer multi-platform easy unit testing solutions for both Linux developers in addition to Windows C++ and .NET. This gives organizations the flexibility to implement unit testing practices in any of these development environments.
“We’re very excited to help Linux developers unit test and perform TDD easily.” commented Eli Lopian Typemock‘s founder and CEO. “Following the success of our Windows .NET and C++ Isolation Frameworks and with an increasing number of developers and organizations using the Linux platform we’re delighted to now offer a single multi-platform solution that removes the complexities and friction of testing code.”
With today’s high demand for smart phones and other advanced technologies the use of C++ is on the rise. Writing correct, secure, code is imperative, especially for the military, avionics, automotive and medical device industries where an error in the code can be critical. Isolator++ for Linux will ensure that the final product surpasses all regulatory requirements.
Typemock (typemock.com) was conceived in 2004 to help programmers develop code integrity through unit testing. Since the launch of the first version of Typemock Isolator in 2006, thousands of companies around the world, including multinationals Microsoft and Nokia, use Typemock tools to make unit testing easy and to upstream the quality processes. Typemock users are developers from a wide range of sectors – such as defence, medical, and finance – that demand exceptionally high standards of quality and minimum errors. Isolator supports the easy unit testing of Silverlight, WCF, and all other .NET and C++ technologies.
Typemock is a privately funded company based in Tel Aviv, Israel.
