is there any chance to add support for simpletest unit testing platform as well?
Simpletest has some advantages over PHPUnit:
simple installation (not forcing any Pear installation)
Similar to PHPUnit:
integrates with selenium server
tests between PHPUnit <-> Simpletest easily portable with minor modifications
not that actively maintained, but it has everything needed, recently updated to comply with E_STRICT mode
PHPUnit has some extra features, like phinx…
In my experience, Simpletest is a bit better or at least equal choice for writing unit tests.
My idea is to give a choice via configuration, like:
'components'=>array( 'CUnitTester'=>array( 'class'=>'system.test.CSimpleTest', or 'class'=>'system.test.CPHPUnit', ), ),
What do you think?
