On NetTuts.com today there's a new tutorial posted from Andrew Perkins about acceptance testing with Codeception, an alternative testing framework that's been gaining popularity in the PHP community.
Codeception is a multi-featured testing framework for PHP. It can handle unit, functional, and acceptance testing of web applications and it’s powered by the already very popular PHPUnit testing framework.
Codeception allows us to test different kinds of user perspectives and site scenarios while they are visiting our app to ensure a pleasant user experience. By testing multiple scenarios, we can simulate a user’s natural flow throughout our application to make sure the app is working as expecting.
The tutorial guides you through the process of getting Codeception up and running and creating a first test. The example test hits a basic PHP-enhanced HTML page to uppercase a given string. They show how to create the test skeleton and flesh it out with a test for the page load as well as the form submission.
