Unit test training with TESSY

Training information in brief

After the first training day, you can use TESSY  to independently plan and execute unit tests for simple test objects. On the second day, you learn the fundamentals for handling even challenging test objects. Using the classification tree method (CTM), you will create structured and understandable test specifications. You will be able to use the skills you've learned in the development process or the test team.


Basic knowledge in C; prior knowledge of unit testing and TESSY is not required.

Laptop with Win7/8/10, 1 GB RAM, 1 GB free memory and latest version of TESSY. You will receive detailed information on the required evaluation license in good time before the event.


Theory and practice in alternating succession. You work with TESSY on your own laptop. After the introduction of TESSY's Eclipse-based graphic user interface, you will analyze C functions (units), develop test strategies, create test cases and execute the unit tests. As you do so, you will become familiar with the required TESSY perspectives. The focus of the training course is not on the sequential presentation of the various TESSY functions, but on the design and execution of unit tests employing adequate methods using TESSY. During the process, the functions of the TESSY modules will be elucidated at the appropriate time.

Topics covered on the first day

Introduction to the unit test, TESSY graphic user interface, creating projects and test environment, integration of the test object, interface to the test object, stimuli data – also import/export to Excel, executing testing with analysis of the test results and generating test reports, handling various data types, backing up and restoring test databases, regression tests, support.

Topics covered on the second day

Handling pointers, handling special test objects (e.g. endless loops), function calls (call trace), code coverage, various options for integrating C code for test execution (user code) with analysis of test data outside of the test data interface (eval macros), introduction to test case specification with the classification tree method.
