Volker Dusch's Blog:
Creating your custom PHPUnit output formats
January 20, 2011 @ 08:36:00

Volker Dusch has a new post to his blog today talking about PHPUnit and how you can make custom output formats to get the results exactly how you need them. The trick is in using XSLT for transformation.

While tackling with someones question i decided it's time to play around with xslt for learning purposes and i found something useful to do. He wanted to extend the --testdox-html output and i proposed to just transform phpunits xml output using an xslt since i didn't see a easy way to prove a custom implemenation for PHPUnit/Util/TestDox/ResultPrinter/HTML.php and i didn't want to change the file its self.

He gives an example of how to use the textdox output method to generate an XML document of the unit test run's results and a simple XSLT style sheet to format the results as a custom HTML page. He uses the "xsltproc" command line tool to make the translation happen.
