PHP Object Unit Testing

 –  Comments Off on PHP Object Unit Testing

I recently found a PHP tool that might actually be useful to a lot of developers in helping to keep their PHP code clean and help with bug tracking and diagnosis.  With PHP 5, we now have the ability to delve quite heavily into OOP based scripting.  This basically means creating PHP code as Objects instead of spaghetti code.  The tool I found recently is a simple framework for testing your newly created PHP objects.  It is called SimpleTest.

Basically, you can build your PHP objects and use this tool to create test cases in order to ensure that future upgrades don’t break existing code. This is called Unit Testing.  Check it out.  I’d love to know how you like it.
