phpautotest has to be walked through your web-site once, it can then follow the same steps and report whether the pages did not work as expected.
Regression testing is a type of software testing that makes sure that your web-site works as expected after bug-fixes and last minute changes. Despite being a good practice and having a jazzy name this sort of testing is a royal bore to perform manually. This is where phpautotest comes in.
Performing a regression tests with phpautotest is a breeze:
- Use a browser to go from page to page, your every move is watched and copied by phpautotest.
- Set up various tests for HTML output as well as PHP variables.
- Break your web-site (a.k.a caffiene fuelled late night bug fixes).
- phpautotest follows the same steps you did and reports whether the pages work as expected.
