With proprietary unit tests tools (UTTs) running $8,000 to $14,000 per user license, for tools like Cantata++ and Rational RealTime Unit Test Tool, some QA professionals are turning to open source (OS) tools as an economical and viable alternative. Fears about available support are unnecessary because OS unit testing tools provide easy-to-follow documentation and helpful online communities. With OS UTTs, the IT manager can save money and improve unit testing satisfaction and success.
Open Source vs. Closed Source Unit Testing Tools
UTTs are crucial to creating and effectively supervising tests for code segments. OS UTTs are a sensible choice for IT departments in small and medium sized companies that have limited budgets.
