Nice article; good quick overview.

As for your wants, I should note that there was something in the Xcode release notes about subprojects. I believe that you can now add a project to another project and have your targets in the enclosing project depend on targets in the subproject.

Also, there are unit testing frameworks available which do just this. I don't know much about them, but OCUnit and ObjCUnit (I think) are both just exactly like that. As to whether they work in Xcode yet or not, I dunno.

    I just came across this quote on apple's "Xcode: A First Look Page":

    "This [Flagged compile errors] increases the utility of the gutter, which previously was used only for breakpoints. In the future, we hope to see even more information about code represented here. One example would be to put pass/fail annotations from test units into the edit view."

    Afterall, we can dream, can't we

      I'm the anonymous who just wrote this above. I just discovered that apple's article was written by James Duncan Davidson, the same person who wrote this article.

      Oh well, it was nice to think that it was coming for a while.

      Thanks for your great articles (both of them)
