Sebastian Bergmann has a new post on his blog today with even more details on the reporting that's to come with the next version of PHPUnit, version 3.
When I moved to Norway just over a month ago, the Code Coverage Reporting of PHPUnit 3 needed almost six hours to run the test suite and generate a Code Coverage report for the eZ components.
Then Derick Rethans committed a patch to [...] reduce the time spent on running the tests dramatically. It now took only two hours to run the test suite and generate the report.
Over the past couple of days, Michael Lively Jr., Jan Kneschke, and myself optimized some hot spots in PHPUnit3 moving the initial six hours have been reduced to eight minutes.
Many congrats to Sebastian and the crew that helped make such a dramatic change in the code coverage report creation! He also notes there's a logger to come to manage the information gathered via the tests (into a SQLite database).
