QtUnit is a unit testing framework for C++ which compiles into a shared library. Tests can be compiled into modules which are automatically reloaded after modification. The text and graphical testrunners are fully localized and integrate perfectly into IDEs to show exactly where a failure has happened. The program consists of the testing framework, the test runner framework, and the GUI runner framework. Test cases can be grouped into test suites, which then can be compiled into independent modules stored in shared libraries (.so, .dll, ...). This minimizes the number of files that must be recompiled when the sources for the test definitions change. Projects can be defined in XML files (visually in the gui test runner) to group an arbitrary number of modules together. The entire framework compiles into a shared library that creates the actual implementations.
