Codeception 1.5.6

Published on March 10, 2013

Codeption 1.5.6 released with varous fixes to Selenium2 module (popups, screenshots) an other bugfixes. We added a bunch of tests for Selenium2 and they are runnng on TravisCI. Also, Codeception is now compatble with Symony 2.2. And few features were intrduced.

Basic Fixtures

Very basic implementation of fixtures was added to Db and Mongo modules. Now you can write something like:

// for Db
$I->haveInDatabase('users', array('name' => 'davert'));
// for Mongo
$I->haveInCollection('users', array('name' => 'davert'));

to add data for a test. For Db module, the inserted record will be cleaned up on text test, even If cleanup option is set to false. So haveInDatabase method cleans data after itself. Something similar exists for Doctrine2 module. Yet, it looks not like for Db and Mongo implementation:

$I->persistEntity(new \Entity\User, array('name' => 'Miles'));

Error Handling

From now on you can set custom error handling parameters per suite or globally.

class_name: WebGuy
    enabled: [PhpBrowser, WebHelper]
error_level: "E_ALL & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED"

Actually, E_ALL & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED is default error level for now. This may be changed in future.

  • screenshots in Selenium2 module is saved correctly
  • seeInField method works correctly even if field is not in form
