A new year, A new POG release

written 3727 days ago

POG 2.6 has been released a few weeks ago. This release addresses recent Relations bugs that have been discovered since the release of version 2.5

For the specific listing of bug fixes, visit our google group

We’ve also taken the opportunity to include in our source code, internal PHPUnit tests against which we test the generator before any release. These unit tests are different from Setup tests that are included with all generated objects since version 2.1

While the Setup tests make sure that all db operations work correctly (Inserts, Updates, Deletes etc), the phpunit tests, on the other hand, ensure that the objects behave as a expected when they are used programmatically by the users. This may seem a bit redundant, but essential, the phpunit tests cover areas that may get broken when the generator source code is modified, whereas the setup tests cover areas that may be get broken when the objects are modified directly. Thus the phpunit tests are a superset of the setup tests.

The main motivation for including those tests was to encourage code modification/contribution of the generator from other developers, and to ensure that the modifications are reliable. The bottom line is that we believe that this will help us keep and even increase the level of code reliability as we/others introduce more useful features in the generator.

If you’ve made modifications to the generator source code, and want to run the tests (on Windows), you need to first make sure you have PHPUnit installed . Then, run setup for the sample app corresponding to the installed PHP version. If you have PHP 4 installed, run the /tests/php4/app/setup/index.php script. If you have PHP 5 installed, run the /tests/php5/app/setup/index.php script. This will create the sample tables and perform the SETUP tests.
Finally, simply run the file “runtests.bat” in the test/phpX/ folder where X can be 4, 5 or 5.1. You should see something like this:

php object generator unit tests

If you have any problems running the tests, ensure that the path to phpunit.bat is included somewhere in the PATH environment variable in Windows. If you have any comments or questions on the latest POG release, feel free to contact us on the POG Google group
