Chris Shiflett's Blog:
PHP Testing Tutorial at ApacheCon
Nov 16, 2005 @ 05:32:45

On Chris Shiflett's blog today, there's a new post about a talk with will (hopefully) be given at this year's ApacheCon by Chris and Geoff Young - a PHP testing tutorial.

Admit it - deep down inside, you know you should be testing your PHP applications. With all of the different PHP test environments and the daunting documentation, sometimes it is difficult to know where to start. This tutorial will help. The first step in testing is deciding what to test, so we will begin by offering a very simple (but not contrived) PHP application with identifying elements that lend themselves to testing - both unit tests and functional tests. Next, we will write some real tests using several of the existing PHP testing frameworks, including PHPUnit, Simple Test, phpt, and Apache-Test.

Chris also mentions some of the packages that are out there to perform the testing with - from the ever-popular PHPUnit to Apache-Test and plenty of documentation in between...
