Boost Test thread safety

Boost - Users mailing list

Hi folks:


I’m trying to identify whether or not the boost Test library is thread safe in the sense that multiple threads can simultaneously interact with the library’s various macros and API. I’m more interested in a single test being multi-threaded than being able to run multiple test cases simultaneously.


In early documentation of the Test library (version 1.58.0 and before) , there’s a section in the introduction called “Open issues” that indicates that the library is not thread-safe. However, the documentation after 1.58.0 was substantially re-written, and I don’t see any discussion regarding thread safety at all.


The question remains… is the Test library thread-safe or not? If there is a definitive statement regarding this issue, please let me know.


Thanks in advance!
