Code Style



This is a simple example of using data provider in PHP Unit. It can be used to write less test with multiple data sets keeping the code coverage high.

    * Data provider for testCalculateTotal
    * variables are in the order of
    * $paymentMethod, $expectedTotal
    * @return type
    public function paymentMethodProvider()
        return [
            ['Cash', 100.00],
            ['Credit Card', 95.00],

     * Test to check if the order total is calculated correctly
     * for given payment method.
     * @param string $paymentMethod
     * @param float $expectedTotal
     * @dataProvider paymentMethodProvider
    public function testCalculateTotal($paymentMethod, $expectedTotal)
            sprintf('Testing total calculation for %s.', $paymentMethod)
