Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding unit testing, part of Learning Laravel 4.
Testing your web application as you develop it…is pretty much a fact of life.…If you want to make sure it all works when it's deployed,…you need to test it as you create it.…Laravel has fully embraced the philosophy…of test-driven development,…and in this lesson we'll pursue an overview…of testing in Laravel in general…and unit testing in particular.…While all web developers test their code manually,…a smaller but growing percentage…now incorporate automated testing,…making it an emerging standard.…
However, as web applications scale up…in scope and use,…such structured exploration becomes imperative.…Test driven development, or TDD,…reverses the develop-and-then-test paradigm.…Instead, as the name states outright,…testing is the driving force for development,…and ensures that newly introduced code…doesn't break the code already written.…Unit testing is a particular approach of TDD.…
The key to unit testing is focus,…whether on a particular class, method, or function.…The goal here is to isolate the procedure,…whatever it is, as much as possible.…
