MXUnit is a unit testing framework for CFML developers, modeled after other xUnit frameworks (JUnit, etc). MXUnit honors the major XUnit conventions but deviates and enhances to provide a more enjoyable, idiomatic CF test experience.
MXUnit was first released in 2007. As of 2013 the current version is v2.1.3  It is the most widely used Unit testing framework in the Coldfusion, Railo and Lucee communities, many examples can be found today not only on the projects website but also on many popular ColdFusion blogs 
MXUnit Assertion Example
The below Asserts true if the desired condition is met, otherwise it'll return false indicating the test has failed.
<cffunction name="clearPrivilegesShouldClearPrivilegesFromObject"> <cfset obj = createObject("component","myObject")> <cfset obj.addPrivilege("EditUsers")> <cfset assertTrue( StructCount(obj.getPrivileges()), "Guard assertion: Ensure we're starting out with privileges before testing clearPrivileges()")> <cfset result = obj.clearPrivileges()> <cfset assertTrue( StructIsEmpty(obj.getPrivileges()), "clearPrivileges Should Have Emptied The Structure of privileges but didn't" )> </cffunction>
