NetTuts.com:
Deciphering Testing Jargon
October 11, 2012 @ 09:13:06

There's been a lot of talk recently about unit testing (and testing in general) in the PHP community and some of the terms that are thrown around might be confusing for someone coming into it fresh. NetTuts.com is here with a guide to help those folks make some sense of it all.

Lately, we've been hearing and reading more and more about test-driven development. This domain, however, comes with a series of expressions and specific jargon that can be confusing to newcomers. This article will walk you through the most common definitions, test types and test parts. Use cases will be provided, and, where possible, some code in PHP will also be presented.

They cover several of the common terms you'll come across when working with testing including:

  • Automated testing
  • Test fixtures
  • Test cases
  • DOC - Dependency-on component
  • Component tests
  • Acceptance testing
  • Continuous Integration/Delivery
