Assuming that the include requirement in the project's requirements is
enough for building the library, the usage-requirements shouldn't be
strictly necessary in this case (even though strongly recommended). This
should be enough:
--- project MyProject : requirements <include>include : build-dir bin ; lib MyLib1 : [ glob src/*.cpp ] ; exe test-mylub : MyLib1 test/test-mylib.cpp ; --- If you want to run the test executable automatically, one could use the unit-test rule instead: --- import testing ; project MyProject : requirements <include>include : build-dir bin ; lib MyLib1 : [ glob src/*.cpp ] ; unit-test test-mylib : MyLib1 test/test-mylib.cpp ; --- HTH / Johan
