DUnit with FastMM: Detecting memory leaks in individual tests.

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/08/05

Steps:

  1. Add the conditional define FASTMM to your project
  2. Ensure you have $(BDS)\source\DUnit\src  in your search path in your project (as otherwise Delphi will pick the pre-built TestFramework.dcu file which was compiled without the FASTMM conditional define)
  3. Inside a test method, or the SetUp method of a class, set FailsOnMemoryLeak to True
  4. If the SetUp method of the class allocates memory, ensure the TearDown de-allocates it. Otherwise you will have leaks:
    • DUnit will check memory differences from the start of the SetUp until the end of the TearDown
    • DUnit will not take into account what is freed in the destructor or by automatic finalization after the destructor!
  5. Re-build your application (otherwise the DUnit TestFramework unit will not take into account the FASTMM conditional define)

Depending in your test framework, FailsOnMemoryLeak might be by default be False or True:

  • TestInsight by default has FailsIfMemoryLeaked set to True for the root test suite (which is then applied to FailsOnMemoryLeak of any test method).
    procedure RunRegisteredTests(const baseUrl: string);
    var
      suite: ITestSuite;
      result: TTestResult;
      listener: ITestListener;
    begin
      suite := RegisteredTests;
      if not Assigned(suite) then Exit;
      result := TTestResult.Create;
      result.FailsIfNoChecksExecuted := True;
      result.FailsIfMemoryLeaked := True;
      listener := TTestInsightListener.Create(baseUrl, suite.CountEnabledTestCases);
      result.AddListener(listener);
      try
        suite.Run(result);
      finally
        result.Free;
      end;
    end;
  • Console DUnit runners (Text, or XML) by default have FailsIfMemoryLeaked set to False.
  • GUI DUnit runner has FailsIfMemoryLeaked depending on the options:

DUnit source differences

Note that recent Delphi versions (I think XE and up) ship with almost the same sources as https://sourceforge.net/code-snapshots/svn/d/du/dunit/svn/dunit-svn-r44-trunk.zip, with these Embarcadero changes:

  • all SVN timestamps are based on time zone -0400 instead of +0000:
    • $Date: 2008-04-24 07:59:47 -0400 (Thu, 24 Apr 2008) $
    • $Date: 2008-04-24 11:59:47 +0000 (Thu, 24 Apr 2008) $
  • Embarcadero removed:
    • all comment lines having TODO in them
    • all files of types .dof, .cfg, and.wmz
    • the files NGUITestRunner.nfm and NGUITestRunner.pas
    • the file /etc/usermap
    • the directory trees /private and /projects
  • Embarcadero changed
    • file /src/versioninfo.res from 9.3.0 to 9.2.1 (which is odd, as all files are from 9.3.0)
    • unit TextTestRunner to support:
      • CLR (used last in Delphi 2007)
      • FailureCount

      • compiler directive LEGACYIFEND
    • GUITestRunner.dfm to have ResultsView: TListView property Height value 45 instead of 39

XSLT for DUnit TXMLTestListener output

I totally missed this, even though the file has been around for a very long time:

ReturnAddressUnit to provide ReturnAddress to Delphi versions not supporting it, and prevent CallerAddr warnings for Delphi versions having ReturnAddress. See https://bitbucket.org/jeroenp/wiert.me/src/8ae6cf29ffc601fde7c1182dead740adddb13fb8/Native/Delphi/Library/RTL/ReturnAddressUnit.pas

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/07

From a check-in a while ago, when some Delphi versions complained about CallerAddr having been replaced by ReturnAddress and other versions not understanding ReturnAddress, but having CallerAddr.

The code in the [WayBack] gist and on [WayBack] BitBucket:

ReturnAddressUnit to provide ReturnAddress to Delphi versions not supporting it, and prevent CallerAddr warnings for Delphi versions having ReturnAddress. See https://bitbucket.org/jeroenp/wiert.me/src/…/Native/Delphi/Library/RTL/ReturnAddressUnit.pas

Basically the code maps a variable having a variable ReturnAddress that is a function reference returning a pointer to a function and redirects to CallerAddr when there is no ReturnAddress available. This is the case for anything below Delphi XE2, and avoids W1000 Symbol 'CallerAddr' is deprecated: 'Use ReturnAddress' for Delphi XE2 and up

It is an extract from [WayBack] dunit-extension/TestCaseExtension.pas at master · fabriciocolombo/dunit-extension · GitHub.

There is more interesting code in [WayBack] GitHub – fabriciocolombo/dunit-extension: Extended DUnit TestCase provides assertions to the types Date, Enumerator, Double, and other types, and a class to help run tests with output as XML, text and GUI mode and even more in [WayBack] fabriciocolombo (Fabricio Colombo) · GitHub , which are on my list of things to play with in the future.

Some more [WayBack] commits are at [WayBack] GitHub – cesarliws/dunit-extension (more on [WayBack] Cesar Romero tomorrow).

I think the code from Fabricio is inspired by [WayBack] ZeosLib/TestFrameWork.pas at master · svn2github/ZeosLib · GitHub as it uses the same HAS_BUILTIN_RETURNADDRESS define.

The code by Fabricio is smarter though.

Via: “Delphi” “CallerAddr” “ReturnAddress” – Google Search

A DUnit Folder Iterator Extension – The Art of Delphi Programming

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/17

Reminder to self: experiment with [WayBack] A DUnit Folder Iterator Extension – The Art of Delphi Programming.

This could be extended to virtual folders, allowing many integration tests to be run depending on some configuration hierarchy defined in a folder structure.
