Lukas Smith's Blog:
QA in the PHP world
May 09, 2007 @ 09:20:00

Lukas Smith looks, in a new post today, asking for some of the current thoughts and feelings surrounding the process of QA-ing PHP applications.

He goes through five different steps in a QA process that can help you find the issues with your application long before any user gets their hands on it:

  • using testing tools like PHPUnit or phpt (including code coverage
  • moving on to Selenium or BadBoy (or similar testing tools) to check the runtime flow
  • making ample documentation with things like phpDocumentor or Doxygen
  • Providing debugging tools for frameworks to make locating errors easier than digging through code and comments
  • use code analyzers to check for attacks/vulnerabilities like cross-site scripting or SQL injections

So what am I missing? Any tool I should have mentioned, team management approach? I am sure I have since I just wrote this blog post very quickly and I do not have a check list yet. Speaking of checklist, that sounds like a good thing to have when doing QA.
