I understand there is a unit test framework for testing PDT itself:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/PDT_Testing_Framework

Does PDT integrate with any PHP unit test frameworks for testing PHP
projects developed with PDT? e.g. http://www.phpunit.de/

Thanks, Jack

Hello Seva,

afaik there is already a bug filed some months ago
for that feature request. I don't believe it
to be too hard to implement, and also Sascha Bergmann
the author of phpunit is willing to help integration. [1]

It would be really great to see this feature in one of
the upcoming releases. So, what says the roadmap on that
subject?

Greetings,
Oliver

I think integrating support for phpunit into PDT would be a great
feature to have in it? I would love to see it implemented in an upcoming
release.

I have found a how-to article on PDT and PHPUnit. The problem is I don't
know German (Well, a little if you count google translation in :)). Here
is a link to the article:

http://www.redbrick.de/index.php?cat=howto

I tried translating the page through google but it wouldn't display
right. I guess I am going to have to translate each paragraph's text.

Another interesting thing are some screenshots published by Sebastian
Bergmann of "Zend Neon" testing the PHPunit integration with it. Is it
integrated with it? or was it just Sabastian playing around with the
IDE? I don't really know. Perhaps Zend's and/or PDT's people can shed
some light on if we should expect any PHPUnit support in PDT any time soon?

PS: We would understand if the Zend team are not willing to expose any
deep stuff about the Neon just yet ;)

I am sure that almost all of you are noticing the increasing popularity
for PDT by now. Don't you agree that by making code testing easier would
give PDT even higher ranks?

I would love to hear anyone's opinion about all of that. After all, PDT
is all about its community ;)


Cheers,
Ali

About your 1st question: as I was so fortunate to meet Sebastian Bergman
in person a few weeks ago I did also ask him about that, and indeed
PHPUnit will be integrated into Zend Neon (in a similar way as JUnit
Tests are integrated with Eclipse for example)

About using PHPUnit with PDT: As I am german I had a look at the
mentioned article, but I think it is done in a too complicated way
there. If you use the php files which are generated by the skeleton
generator of PHPUnit you are able to run the Unit tests by either the
commandline ("phpunit testfile") or just by executing that php script
with php.exe. So this is exactly what I do in eclipse: I create the
skeleton (using command line), copy it to the right place in my
directory structure (./tests/...) and then edit it inside Eclipse/PDT. I
do use XDebug instead of the Zend Debugger Plugin for PDT. Then I can
simply create a "Run" or "Debug" configuration for the file I want to
start (e.g. one of the AllTests or a specific test) and use it just
fine. The advantages are that you are actually able to debug, and also
able to echo/var_dump variables, etc. when running your PHPUnit scripts
with php.exe instead of the phpunit wrapper.

I hope I was able to give you the idea of what I meant.

Greetings,
Marius

Marius,

Thanks a lot for the idea. I can see that the way you do it gives you
more option to run/debug. I will certainly give it a try.

As for integrating into Neon, It's great to hear that it will have
native support for PHPUnit. The question is, would PDT do?

Anyway, I guess time will certainly tell ;)

Thanks again.

Cheers,
Ali

Yes, it works. You are executing simple scripts and You are looking at the
console view.

Looking at bugs should answer this question (id 150506). Maybe we should
vote on this request since it got no comments for one year. I am thinking
of a small community project (since I cannot wait any more) and maybe it
will be integrated in PDT one time :-)

* Integrate a launch configuration based on pdt's launch configuration
* Integrate some commands (run as PHPUnit test...)
* Integrate a simple view (like JUnit's view)

Those should be fairly simple. But it does not cover PHPUnits power. There
are some other features:
* Code coverage (using XDebug)
* Software metrics (as of PHPUnit 3.2)

One might want to create PHPUnit tests on the fly. Also there should be
respect on other extensions (Mock objects, DBUnit port.....).
