Selenium RC integration for PHPUnit

This package contains a base Testcase Class that can be used to run end-to-end tests against Selenium 2 (using its Selenium 1 backward compatible Api).

Please direct pull requests to giorgiosironi/phpunit-selenium for automated testing upon merging.

A feature branch containing all the commits you want to propose works best.

Running the test suite


To run the test suite for this package, you should serve selenium-1-tests via HTTP:

selenium-1-tests/ $ python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8080

and configure the constant that you will be asked for accordingly if you do not run the server on localhost:8080. You also need to run a Selenium Server:

$ java -jar  selenium-server-standalone-2.x.xjar

or with xvfb:

$ sudo xvfb-run java -jar bin/selenium-server-standalone-2.x.x.jar

Take a look at for an automated way to setup the HTTP and Selenium servers.

Dependencies are managed via Composer, so you must grab them like this:

$ composer install --dev

The tests can then be run with:

$ vendor/bin/phpunit Tests

You can copy phpunit.xml.dist to phpunit.xml and setup a custom configuration for browsers, but the test suite is based on Firefox on an Ubuntu machine.

Via Vagrant

Just run the following Vagrant commands (a minimal version of v1.7 is required) and everything will be set up for you. The first start will take some time which depends on the speed of your connection (and less - speed of your computer):

vagrant up
vagrant provision
vagrant ssh

cd /vagrant
vendor/bin/phpunit Tests

and you must see the phpunit testing phpunit-selenium project.

IMPORTANT NOTE about Vagrant usage

After vagrant has initialized the VM it makes sense to change amount of memory (and number of CPUs) manually from 384Mb by default to something near 2Gb (and 2 CPUs accordingly). I didn't do that in Vagrantfile deliberately since not every configuration might afford allocating 2Gb and 2 CPUs. Otherwise VM will swap hardly and at least one test will crash due to Out Of Memory.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
