The class TestSuite (see Figure C-31) implements the interface Test . It is a composite of Test objects. Since the contained Test objects may be instances of TestCase , TestSuite , or any other subclass of Test , this allows hierarchies of Test classes to be assembled and run as a unit. A TestSuite is run just like a TestCase : by calling its run( ) method and passing in a TestResult to receive the results. The TestSuite then sequentially runs the Test objects it contains.

A TestSuite takes ownership of all Test objects added to it and deletes them in its destructor.

TestSuite belongs to the namespace CppUnit . It is declared in the file TestSuite.h and implemented in the file TestSuite.cpp .
