Unit Testing is a type of software testing where specific units or segments of the software are tested. The goal is to validate that each unit of the software code executes as expected. Unit Testing is done during the development of an application by the developers.

DUnitX is an open-source unit test framework based on the NUnit test framework, including some ideas from xUnit as well. The RAD Studio integration of DUnitX framework enables you to develop and execute tests against Win32, Win 64, macOS, and Linux in Delphi applications.

The DUnitX testing framework provides its own set of methods for testing conditions. You can use the provided methods to test a large number of conditions. These methods represent common assertions although you can also create your own custom assertions.
