PHP in Action Blog:
Tips for web testing
February 13, 2008 @ 08:09:46

On the PHP in Action Blog, there's a this post that shares some tips for testing your web applications with some simple tests.

I just started listing the techniques I've learned when writing tests to exercise the web interface of a PHP application. This is from my experience and my personal preferences; it's not the final word or necessarily right for everyone.

He suggests:

  • Use SimpleTest's Web tester if you can
  • Test the web output using regular expressions
  • Use element IDs or names to test links, forms and fields
  • Log HTTP requests in the application
