How to set up database-heavy unit tests in Symfony2 using PHPUnit?
|May 28, 2012||Posted by forumadmin under TechQns||
I am quite new to the world of testing and I want to make sure I am on the right track.
I am trying to setup unit tests in a symfony2 project using phpunit.
PHPUnit is functional and the simple default controller tests work fine. My project relies heavily on database interactions though, and as far as I understand from phpunit’s documentation, I should set up a class based on
\PHPUnit_Extensions_Database_TestCase, then create fixtures for my db and work from there.
Yet, symfony2 only offers a
WebTestCase class which only extends from
\PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase out of the box.
So am I right to assume that I should create my own
DataBaseTestCase which mostly copies
WebTestCase, only difference being that it extends from
\PHPUnit_Extensions_Database_TestCase and implements all its abstract methods?
Or is there another “built-in” recommended workflow for symfony2 concerning database-centric tests?
As I want to make sure that my models store and retrieve the right data, I do not want to end up testing the specifics of doctrine by accident.
