Unknown method 'setAttributes' for class 'Project'

I follow the steps in the chapter 5 of the book ‘Agile Web Application Development with Yii 1.1 and PHP5’ published by Packtpub. It’s about generate an AR for a simple table ‘tbl_project’ (using sqlite). When I test it with phpunit, it prints the following error:

PHPUnit 3.5.14 by Sebastian Bergmann.


Time: 0 seconds, Memory: 8.75Mb

There was 1 error:

  1. Project::testCRUB

Exception: Unknown method ‘setAttributes’ for class ‘Project’.




Code used for testing:

class Project extends CDbTestCase


        public function testCRUB()


                // Create a new project

                $newProject = new Project;

                $newProjectName = 'Test Project 1';



                                'name' => $newProjectName,

                                'description' => 'Test project number one',

                                'create_time' => '2011-01-01 00:00:00',

                                'create_user_id' => 1,

                                'update_time' => '2011-01-02 00:00:00',

                                'update_user_id' => 1,






But I have no problem when using PDO to access the sqlite file.

Any help is appreciated.

There’s a naming collision between the test case class and the model class (both are called “Project”). Rename test case to “ProjectTest”.

What a stupid typo!

Thank you very much, phtamas.
