The first time I was forced to create a test for a core patch I wanted in D7 I really hated it. But now some months and some pain later I can say it was worth it.

Testing makes our modules more reliable. Even if we have todo a lot of work at start creating a test later on we will spend less time on debugging stuff. Even if our module ceases to work correctly we will be quicker at finding the problem.

Let us take a look how we create tests for our modules by using simpletest. It's easier than it looks and I will help you getting into it! :)

My session will cover:

  • Testing requirements
  • DrupalWebTestCase
  • How to structure and debugging tests
  • Selenium for additional testing
