Boost.Test and CMake

I just started using CMake and the Boost Libraries. In this progress I encountered some problems.
One of these problems is combining Boost unit tests with cmake. I don't know how to set the whole project up. I tried to set up a simple test project. This contains a main.cpp a comp.cpp and the comp.h
The main.cpp isn't doing anything at the moment. Comp contains a class:
class Comp
int add(int a, int b);
int sub(int a, int b);

Well the content of the cpp should be obvious I hope.
Additional I wrote the runner.cpp:
#define BOOST_TEST_MODULE "C++ Unit Tests for Calculator"
#include <boost/test/unit_test.hpp>
#include "Comp_Test.h"

and the Comp_Test.h:
#include <boost/test/unit_test.hpp>
        Adder adder;

The folder structure is as followed:
| |inc
| | |Comp.h
| |main.cpp
| |Comp.cpp
| |CMakelists.txt[1]
| |inc
| | |Comp_Test.h
| |runner.cpp
| |CMakelists.txt[2]

CMakelists.txt[1] should set up the makefile for the project itself and has following content:
cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)




and the second CMakelists.txt contains:
cmake_minimum_required(VERSION 2.6)
find_package(Boost REQUIRED unit_test_framework)






So far am I. I think this contains some errors.
Some questions I couldn't answer myself:
1. Is it even possible to separate this in 2 projects like I tried?
2. If I don't separate it what happens to the testcode when I don't want to test? I hope it will only be executed if I execute "make test".

Well, sorry for the long code I hope somebody can help me. Thank you in advance for everybody who has taken the effort to read till the end. Smilie
