The Micro Focus Unit Testing Framework is an xUnit-style testing framework, available from the Visual COBOL command line or shell prompt, or from the IDE. It supports native COBOL applications, and procedural applications compiled to JVM COBOL.
It includes much of the architecture you would expect of an xUnit framework: you can create, compile, run and debug unit tests from either the command line or your IDE.
Similar functionality is offered whether you use the command line or the IDE to perform these tasks. The IDE version provides a quick and easy solution to running all test cases then providing an overview of the test run. The command line solution can output the results in a number of different formats, for easy integration with your third-party testing and development applications, for example, Micro Focus Silk Central, or a Jenkins CI server.
