Review of the book: Zend Framework 2 Cookbook written by Josephus Callaars, issued by Packt Publishing.

There is many cookery books although I haven’t seen yet any about Zend Framework 2.
No matter how you name the book, title is just a title and every book have to stand out of the competitions. Otherwise is will be just one of the many cookbooks…

 Zend Framework 2 Cookbook

To be honest – there is no too much books about Zend Framework 2, so writing such book is worth fighting for.

The typical cookery book contains many recipes, provided with nice looking pictures and hints about how to make some dish or meal. Cookbooks teach people by practice and repetition till we reach perfection.

We won’t become good cook-progammer in 24 hours, which is quite often used in the books related to Computer Science, trying to convince us that it is possible.

Did the author rised to the occasion?

I will try to answer for that question in this review.

Overview

Today I would like to focus on the unit testing in applications made with Zend Framework 2 and Doctrine 2 ORM. Sample unit tests were included with Zend Framework 1.x and they are also attached to Zend Framework 2 Tutorial.

Important is, that we have two approaches of testing controllers for the latest version of the framework:

  • first, based on class PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase,
  • and the second, which uses AbstractHttpControllerTestCase class.
