There is a fully functional unit test framework for mozilla at
We are successfully using it to test our xulrunner app, but it may be
very helpful for those who develop extensions for mozilla products and
want to use unit testing.
The framework allows to create a test hierarchy, and check code in any
XPCOM supported language. In addition to testing code, we use the
framework to test parsing of all our chrome.
The framework is specifically designed to allow automated testing, we
run it from makefile on every build. The result is that we don't need to
browse the entire application to see whether or not the newly added
chrome fragment works.
We are using a rather complicated autoconf/automake/libtool build system
for our xul app, so there is no Makefile provided with the source code.
If someone wishes to create an extension-style Makefile.in for the
framework and try it hands-on, I will provide all the help and data I can.
