Use "RTEMS BSP" instead of "BSP" to remove potential confusion.

RTEMS Testing

Table of Contents

    Error: Page Projects/TestingImprovements does not exist

Mentors: Amar Takhar, Sebastian Huber


Status: Uninitiated.

Introduction: RTEMS test suite needs major cleanup in order to modernise and allow for easier additions of new tests.

Goal: Creation of 4 separate test groups: Host-based (Testing of APIs out-of-band), Operational (Runs on actual hardware or in-simulation), RTEMS BSP-specific tests and tests specific to a Board.

Requirements: Knowledge of testing is not required. The idea candidate should have a firm grasp of the C language with knowledge of C++ as some of the test frameworks will be written using googletest and googlemock. Other components of the framework will have to be written from scratch the exact language used for this has not been decided. Learning how to test software is an extremely desirable skill in the software development world any candidate should come in with an eagerness to learn.

Resources: You are encouraged to contact Amar on IRC in the RTEMS channel or email him directly ( with any questions you may have.

As the project progresses, you will need to add build instructions, etc and this page will evolve from a project description into a HOWTO.
