    phpUnit Windows GUI

    So we all know how tedious running of phpUnit can be. Well I have written a tool for windows only that aids in the process of running tests. The reason I'm posting is i need some help beta testing it on windows machines. So if you would like to help out I'm looking for unknown bugs and errors.

    you can submit bugs ether through Gmail on Here or email them to me at jgetner@gmail.com

    I apologize if this is the wrong thread not many places to help access php developers for testing.
    atleast your getting some help... image if you had to figure it out all on your own?.... testing is everthing..... do it be it live it...

    I will take a look this weekend, as I have a quick project that will need unit tests written

    FWIW, this should probably be under Echo Lounge, but I'm not a mod so whatevas :P

    So I never heard of phpUnit before and the wiki page says very little.
    I can't quite figure out under what circumstances one would use this and how it would work.
    Surely one tests code as it is built...

    A sentence or two would be most informative!

    The author probably assumed that the target audience would understand what it is based on the "languageUnit" pattern that some unit test frameworks adopt.

    Generally, the idea behind a unit test framework is to provide um, a framework by which unit tests can be written and then repeatedly run through automation.

    Hmm, so no explanation as it is assumed interested parties understand the subject.. you can see my point I hope.
    I've read most of the Zandstra book but rarely use the principles set out therein.
    Even a verbatim Google search on 'languageUnit pattern' returns zilch. Oh well..

    What does a verbatim Google search on "phpUnit" return?

    I don't see your point. Assuming that interested parties understand it is fine. If you don't understand, find out. Of course, it would be better to have the phrase "unit test framework" somewhere so that someone stumbling upon the repository would be better able to find out what the GUI is for if they don't know (or even just recognise the phrase immediately), but not having it is not a big deal either.

    Likewise, you assume that our dear visitors have a clue as to the "Zandstra book"

    Okay, maybe I should have written "fooUnit pattern" instead, but then you might ask what is foo

    But yes, why didn't you search for "phpUnit" instead of "languageUnit pattern"?

    I did search for phpUnit - that is what triggered first post.
    I know that most of you (i.e. you Laserlight) are entirely familiar with Matt Z's book (and since his name is so rare useful results will appear fast ).
    I was hoping for a short summary and only got code listings.

    I have now found this, so will read it:

    This must be one of those situations where Google skews search results based on what it reckons you want to see. When I search for phpUnit, the first three hits are: the phpUnit manual, the phpUnit github site, and the Wikipedia entry.
    All three hits give a short summary after following, respectively, two, one, and zero links (counting the link on Google's page).

    Interesting. It does that quite a lot, I think. I wish it wouldn't.

    My top five results for "phpunit" at Google (from the Chromebar):

    • github.com/sebastianbergmann/phpunit/
    • phpunit.de/manual/3.7/en/
    • en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHPUnit
    • pear.php.net/PHPUnit
    • phpunit.sourceforge.net


    Which should be prettymuch self-explanatory: Bergmann's GitHub repo, {German?} manual, English Wikipedia entry, the old repos/project pages from PEAR and SF, respectively.
