DUnit Compatibility in Smoketest

Te Waka o Delphi – To address some odd concerns about differences between DUnit and Smoketest, I thought it would be useful to demonstrate how it is entirely within the gift of a Smoketest user to create their own “comfort” layer, to make using Smoketest more similar to the DUnit framework if they wish ...

OOP design and event driven programming

Behind the connection – In a previous article, one of the 3 main design advices was “Use events to free your classes from things that can change”.

Te Waka o Delphi – A couple of commenters on my previous post have taken issue with my use of interfaces to form contracts between test cases and the test framework, rather than using simple virtual methods and inheritance as found in DUnit.
