Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog:
Setting up your Zend_Test test suites
September 15, 2008 @ 07:58:11

In a new post to his blog Matthew Weier O'Phinney talks about using the Zend_Test component of the Zend Framework to set up test suites on your application.

Testing and test automation should be easy and the complex approach is overkill for most of our applications. Fortunately, PHPUnit offers some other methods that make doing so relatively simple. The easiest method is to use an XML configuration file.

He includes a basic XML config file for a "My Test Suite" setup defining the application's directory and where to log the end report to. This simple PHPUnit configuration can be used with the "phpunit" command line binary to auto-configure all you'll need for the testing. Matthew also includes the code for a sample TestHelper you can drop right into the app to help set up your environment correctly when testing is needed.
