In the Vodcatcher plugin I used CxxTest:

TomG uses CxxTest in the Sudoku plugin as well:

In general unit testing C++ code can be kinda painful compared to Nunit,
Junit or RSpec. CxxTest was the best C++ unit testing tool I could find,
but maybe there exists something better now.

Besides this you can use Valgrind to hunt down mem leaks and cppcheck for
static code analysis.
