Sebastian Göttschkes' Blog:
Extending the Testclass for Unittests
May 02, 2012 @ 11:38:16

In his previous post Sebastian Göttschkes introduced a set of classes you could use for different types of testing in your Symfony2 applications. In his most recent post he expands on these examples, giving the UnitTestClass an extra ability.

In one of my last articles on Testclasses for symfony2 I explained some of the classes I use for my tests. Since then I found a great article on metatesting and want to update my UnitTest class to show some practical examples.

His update allows the class to access private properties via a "getAttribute" method that, via PHP's Reflection, allows you to pull out the private property's value and a "setAttribute" that lets you inject a value back in. He includes a word of warning, though - if you're using something like this often., you're probably "doing it wrong" and might need to think through your application design a bit more.

You can find the source for his classes in his previous post.
