Hi cdt folks!

On the base of Alena Laskavaia's work we, Martin Schwab and Thomas
Kallenberg develop a test-driven development plug-in suite for Eclipse
CDT. This work is a bachelor thesis at the HSR Hochschule fuer Technik,
Rapperswil under the supervision of Prof. Peter Sommerlad.
We are working on this feature for about 4 weeks and we would like to
show you our results to get some input.

At the moment we are working on several features like:

- Creation of local variable (there is already a plug-in which can
handle this. However it does not work with macros.

It makes sense to fix existing "extract local variable" refactoring rather than to reimplement it from scratch.
This is one of our
features since we use CUTE Tests as our base which uses macros.)
- Creation of member functions
- Creation of free functions
- Detection of return type for created functions
- LinkedMode to edit parts of the created functions

If you plan to contribute this functionality to CDT, please create a bugzilla entry and attach a patch for org.eclipse.cdt.ui plugin.

We do have an update site where you can download the latest version of
our plug-in. If you like to test it just install our nightly build from:

Be careful since this is not yet very stable and in pre-Alpha state.

So feel free to contact us if you found issues, have any suggestion or
wishes you would like to see in our plug-in.
