PHPMaster.com:
Ruling the Swarm (of Tests) with Codeception
March 19, 2013 @ 09:15:25

On PHPMaster.com today there's a new tutorial posted showing you how to use the Codeception testing tool to perform some acceptance/functional testing of your application.

What happens if you have more tests then zergs in the swarm? Really much more. You should find a way to control and manage them. In this article I'll share some hints and best practices you may use writing acceptance tests. I'll use Codeception testing framework to illustrate the best practices, but surely, they can be ported to any acceptance framework you use for testing.

He introduces the Codeception tool and some of the features it includes. He recommends using it to coordinate all of your testing as it can handle PHPUnit and Selenium tests as well as generate its own code coverage reports. He includes some code showing a basic test, making a request to a page, checking for contents and clicking on some links. He also shares a few design patterns using the tool - Page Object and Controller test examples.
