PHPUnit and Test Driven Development by Example Print
Written by David Stockton

As promised, I've finished the editing of the screen cast and uploaded it to the intarwebs. You can view it here: PHPUnit and Test Driven Development . I step you through creating a functional Zend_Form without having to set up the whole Zend MVC framework.

The form is presented as a standard HTML form that submits to a PHP page for processing. That page simply determines if the form is "valid" or not by calling Zend_Form's isValid() method. The form has three fields: name, email and phone. Using Test Driven Development, I show you how to write unit tests first and then write a little bit of code to make them pass until at the end we've got a fully functional Zend_Form object with validators (Zend_Validate) and filters (Zend_Filter), including development of a custom filter class for formatting the phone number and another filter for allowing alphabetic phone number entry.

Please take a look and send any comments or questions to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I hope you enjoy the screencast, and I hope to see you at our next meeting.
