Run/Debug Configuration: PHPUnit by HTTP
Use this dialog box to configure running unit tests of PHP applications on a remote server.
Before you start
To run PHPUnit tests:
- Install and configure the PHPUnit tool on your computer, see http://www.phpunit.de/manual/current/en/installation.html.
- Make sure the PHP plugin is installed and enabled. The plugin is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
In this tab, specify the unit tests to launch and the command line switches to be passed to the test runner.
|Test|| In this area, specify the location of tests or the configuration file where they are listed. |
|Test Runner options|
|Custom working directory|| In this text box, specify the location of the files that are outside the folder with tests and are referenced in your tests through relative paths. Type the path manually or click Browse and select the desired folder in the dialog that opens. |
This setting does not block the test execution because the location of tests is always specified through a full path to the corresponding files and/or directories.
Test Groups tab
In this tab, appoint the groups of tests to execute when the tests are run according to the current run configuration.
Grouping tests is helpful, for example, to distinguish between tests to run in a production environment from those to run in your development environment. You just need to create two groups and then include or exclude them depending on the current environment.
To attach a test to a group, tag it with the @group annotation in the format:
/** @group <group specification> */
|Include/Exclude groups||Select this checkbox to enable configuring execution of test groups.|
|Group Name||In this read-only list, select the test group to be involved or skipped in testing.|
|Include||Select this checkbox to have the tests from the selected test group executed.|
|Exclude||Select this checkbox to have the tests from the selected test group skipped.|
In this tab, configure deployment of tests to a remote server.
|Debug server|| In this field, specify the configuration through which the debugging engine will interact with the server through HTTP. Actually, a configuration consist of a URL address of the target environment, the debugger type, and possibly mappings between folders in your project and their correspondences on the server. |
Choose a configuration from the drop-down list or click Browse and define a new configuration in the Servers dialog box that opens.
|Upload test directory before run|| |
|Remove test files after run|| |
|Show transfer logs||Select this checkbox to have test deployment logged.|
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options for it:
|Name||In this text box, specify the name for the run/debug configuration. The name will help you identify the created configuration when you choose to edit it later, or when you invoke it, for example. from the Run popup (Shift+Alt+F10).|
|Share|| Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members. |
If the directory-based project format is used, the settings for a run/debug configuration are stored in a separate .xml file in the
If the file-based format is used, the settings are stored in the
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
|Alt+Insert||Create a run/debug configuration.|
|Alt+Delete||Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.|
|Ctrl+D||Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.|
|Edit Templates||View and edit the default template for the selected run/debug configuration. The templates are used for newly created configurations.|
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
|Move into new folder / Create new folder|| |
You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category to be grouped, click , and specify the name for the folder. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag-and-drop or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
|Sort configurations||Click this button to sort configurations in alphabetical order.|
When you select Templates in the tree view of the run configurations, you can adjust some settings that apply for all run debug configurations.
|Configurations available in Run Dashboard|| |
In this section you can create a list of run configurations available in the Run Dashboard — tool window that helps you execute and manage multiple run/debug configurations.
Note that the dashboard will only display those configuration types for which you have created one ore more configurations.
|Confirm rerun with process termination||The behavior of this checkbox depends on whether the Single instance only checkbox is selected for a particular run/debug configuration. |
|Temporary configurations limit||Specify here the maximum number of temporary configurations to be stored and shown in the Select Run/Debug Configuration drop-down list.|
Before Launch options
In this area you can specify tasks that should be carried out before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The specified tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
|Alt+Insert|| Click this icon to add one of the following available tasks: |
|Alt+Delete||Click this icon to remove the selected task from the list.|
|Enter||Click this icon to edit the selected task. Make the necessary changes in the dialog that opens.|
|/||Alt+Up/Alt+Down||Click these icons to move the selected task one line up or down in the list. (The tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.)|
|Show this page||Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.|
|Activate tool window|| |
Otherwise, the tool window isn't shown. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing Alt+4 or Alt+5.
