This topic explains how to create and configure C++test projects for code that is designed to be compiled/built using ARM compilers and/or written with the aid of the DS-5 IDE.

C++test integrates with ARM Development Studio 5 (DS-5) projects. Both managed and static makefile build types are supported

When testing a project that uses the ARM C/C++ Compiler to build an ARM Linux application or  library (e.g.using the armcc --arm_linux_configure --arm_linux_config_file=path command), you must manually change the linker executable from armlink to armcc in the project compiler settings. Choose Project Properties> Parasoft> C++test > Build Settings to edit the compiler settings. Changing the linker executable allows the behavior of ARM C/C++ toolchain to be mimicked in ARM Linux mode.
