Don't test groups( PHPUnit support @group annotation) functions of class extends from Yii in Netbeans

  • Hello guys! Current I’ve a problem with Yii, when I’d using “@group annotation” ( support by PHPUnit ) to test a groups function in my class extends from Yii.

  • I’d configured as guidance of forum Yii as below (sorry guys! because this’s first my post, so I don’t embed links here).

Configure project options:

Open "[b]File > Project properties > Sources[/b]" and set "[b]Test Folder[/b]" to [PROJECT ROOT]/protected/tests (If the whole project testing doesn't work, try [PROJECT ROOT]/protected/tests/unit).

Open "[b]File > Project properties > PHPUnit[/b]" and set "[b]Use Bootstrap[/b]" to [i][PROJECT ROOT]/protected/tests/bootstrap.php[/i], and "[b]Use XML Configuration[/b]" to [i][PROJECT ROOT]/protected/tests/phpunit.xml[/i].
  • I’d tested all functions in my class, when I press Ctrl + F6. It’s run very good.

  • When I check "Ask for Test Groups Before Running Tests" in the dialog box in "File > Project properties > PHPUnit".

  • But when I’d used “@group annotation”(support by PHPUnit). It not run, I don’t see the dialog box.

  • I thing this’s problem here are two file “bootstrap.php” and “phpunit.php”, but I don’t how alter it?.

  • Code below:

  • DemoController.php:

    `class DemoController extends Controller{`


        public function add($a, $<img src='' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />


            return $a + $b;



  • DemoControllerTest.php:

    `require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../../../fixtures/dataProvider.php';`


    `require_once dirname(__FILE__) . '/../../../../controllers/DemoController.php';`


    `class DemoControllerTest{`


        protected $object;


        protected function setUp() {

            $this->object = new Calculator;




         * @group Calculator


         * @dataProvider dataProvider


        public function testCalculator($c, $a, $<img src='' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' /> {


                    , $this->object->add($a, $<img src='' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />




        function dataProvider(){


            $result = dataProvider::dataProvider();

            return $result;






  • dataProvider.php:

`class dataProvider {`


        static function dataProvider(){

            return array(

              array(0, 0, 0),

              array(0, 1, 1),

              array(1, 0, 1),

              array(1, 1, 3)
