Test-Harness for PHP
February 06, 2006 @ 06:47:01

Chris Shiflett has a quick post today with another addition to the "reasons to use TAP for your testing" - test-harness.php.

In the tradition of test-more.php, Mike Lively adds to the growing list of reasons to be using TAP (Test Anything Protocol) by creating test-harness.php, a TAP-compliant PHP testing harness. This provides yet another testing option for PHP developers:

  • Easy: Apache-Test (with any TAP-compliant library)
  • Easier: test-harness.php (with any TAP-compliant library)
  • Easiest: test-more.php

You can grab the source for test-harness here and the source for test-more here...

Sebastian Bergmann's Blog:
PHPUnit 3.0
December 26, 2005 @ 07:20:09

In his latest post today, Sebastian Bergmann announces the upcoming release of the latest version of the widely popular PHP unit testing suite - PHPUnit 3.0.

These past few days I have been busy hacking on what will become PHPUnit 3.0, hopefully already in January 2006.

The hallmark feature of PHPUnit 3.0 will be its support for Mock Objects. PHPUnit's Mock Object implementation has been initially developed by Jan Borsodi of eZ systems AS and is inspired by jMock.

While working with the Unit Tests for the Zend Framework I noticed that PHPUnit previously had no support for skipping the execution of a test, for instance when a required PHP extension is not available. PHPUnit 3.0 introduces the PHPUnit2_Framework_Assert::markTestSkipped() to mark a test as being skipped.

Chris Shiflett requested support for the Test Anything Protocol (TAP) which I added in the form of a respective PHPUnit2_Framework_TestListener implementation.

PHPUnit has become the de-facto standard for unit testing with PHP, and it's great to see so many more improvements coming from it. It's also good to see that, through it's efforts with the Zend Framework, it's also found some places it was lacking and fixed them right up.
