Smart web developers will tell you that the sooner you detect your code mistakes, the quicker you can fix them, and the less the project will cost in the long run. Well, the most efficient way to detect your mistakes in PHP is with PHPUnit, an open source framework that automates unit testing by running a battery of tests as you go. The benefits of PHPUnit are significant, they are: a reduction in the effort required to frequently test code; fewer overall defects; added confidence in your code; and improved relations with your open source teammates. The only problem with this popular testing tool was its lack of documentation-until now, that is. For this, "O'Reilly" went right to the source, as Sebastian Bergmann, the author of "PHPUnit Pocket Guide", also happens to be PHPUnit's creator. This little book brings together hard-to-remember information, syntax, and rules for working with PHPUnit. It also delivers the insight and sage advice that can only come from the technology's creator. The coverage of testing under agile methodologies and Extreme Programming (XP) is also included. The latest in "O'Reilly's" series of handy Pocket Guides, this quick-reference book puts all the answers are right at your fingertips. It's an invaluable companion for anyone interested in testing the PHP code they write for web applications.
