Michelangelo van Dam's Blog:
Unit testing with Zend Framework 1.8+
Nov 02, 2009 @ 10:46:37

In a new post to his blog Michelangelo van Dam talks about a presentation he gave on testing Zend Framework applications (slides) and shares some of the code samples and techniques he mentioned.

Since then I got a lot of questions how to set up a testing environment for Zend Framework applications that uses version Zend Framework 1.8 or newer. We start off by setting our environment best fitted for our unit testing. I use a virtual linux system for this, using VMWare, but with some extra background research these global settings can be applied for your own (test) environment as well.

He includes the code/XML to set up the PHPUnit instance, a TestHelper script to set up the environment correctly and the controller and its test case. Screenshot output is included for both the test runner and the code coverage report.
