Advanced PHPUnit: Annotations
Aug 19, 2009 @ 13:20:33

On the Genius.com blog today there's a new post from Bill Hewett looking at some of the advanced notations you can use in your unit testing (directives in comments starting with "@").

PHPUnit, borrowing a handy feature from Java's JUnit testing library allows you to use certain directives beginning with "@" in comments of your test or application code to access test-related functionality. These directives, known as annotations, even expose features not otherwise accessible to PHPUnit users.

He looks at a list of eight including @assert, @dataProvider and @test as well as some of the new ones coming in PHPUnit 3.4.
