Hi Markus: > looking at these three packages, there are three variants of how the > tests are executed: > > Cache_Lite: phpunit tests/ > File_Bittorrent: phpunit Tests/AllTests.php > File_Bittorrent2: phpunit tests/AllTests.php Let me answer a question that yours touches on, but isn't exactly your question. There are several ways to call PHPUnit style tests. The choice used depends on how the test files are set up. 1) The preferred way to do things is have all test files with names ending in "Test.php" and calling PHPUnit like this: phpunit tests If the test files are not named *Test.php, an AllTests.php script is needed. The way to execute the script depends on how the AllTests.php file is configured. 2) If the file has the standard "define('PHPUnit_MAIN_METHOD')", eg http://svn.php.net/viewvc/pear/packages/File_Archive/trunk/tests/AllTests.php?revision=320595&view=markup it is necessary to invoke "php" to run it because using "phpunit" will cause the suite to run twice, which can lead to problems (such as errors from constants being redefined). So call them like this: php tests/AllTests.php 3) If it has the enhanced "$call_main / define('PHPUnit_MAIN_METHOD')", eg http://svn.php.net/viewvc/pear/packages/Structures_Graph/trunk/tests/AllTests.php?revision=321538&view=markup it is possible to call it via "php" or "phpunit". phpunit tests/AllTests.php OR php tests/AllTests.php Also, some packages have only .phpt tests, but they also provide an AllTests.php script providing the developers the option to run the tests using PHPUnit. Please don't. This can mean the tests get run twice in some situations. Just invoke the tests like this: pear run-tests -r tests Now that's clarified, let me touch on error reporting levels. In 5.3, E_DEPRECATED is included in E_ALL but E_STRICT is not. But in 5.4, E_ALL includes both. So if your the package in question is not E_STRICT and E_DEPRECATED compliant, you need to add the following argument to the command: "-d error_reporting=22527". So, for example: php -d error_reporting=22527 tests/AllTests.php Here's a rundown on the reporting level choices that work in both 5.3 and 5.4: Show Show Deprecated Strict Value ---------- ------ ----- N N 22527 N Y 24575 Y N 30719 Y Y 32767 Thanks, --Dan -- T H E A N A L Y S I S A N D S O L U T I O N S C O M P A N Y data intensive web and database programming http://www.AnalysisAndSolutions.com/ 4015 7th Ave #4, Brooklyn NY 11232 v: 718-854-0335 f: 718-854-0409 -- PEAR QA Mailing List (http://pear.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
