The way tests are run is through: if name == 'main': unittest.main() Then unittest.main() builds a TestSuite object that contains all the tests that have method names starting with "test", then a TextTestRunnerwhich then executes each method and prints the results.

So unittest can be considered pretty flexible when it comes to test case execution. See More
