Continuous Integration In Php Continuous Integration In Php Presentation Transcript

  • Continuous Integration in PHP Why, what and how? Wilco Jansen October 4th 2009 Tdose, at the Fontys University of Applied Science in Eindhoven, Netherlands
  • Wilco Jansen Formerly Involved in Joomla • Board member Open Source matters • Core team member • (first ever) Development coordinator • Creator of the Joomla bug-squad • Google Summer of Code program manager 2006, 2007 and 2008 editions • Google Highly Open participation content program manager in 2008
  • This presentation is about development tools View slide
  • Continuous integration in PHP View slide
  • That help build better software in PHP
  • Things to think about before you run out of time...
  • Tools will solve some problems
  • Why use continuous integration? ● The earliest possible detection of problems in the software ● Detection of integration problems, no last minute hiatus before releases ● Early warning of broken/incompatible code ● Early warning of conflicting changes ● Immediate unit testing of all changes ● Constant availability of a “current” build for testing, demo or release purposes ● The immediate impact of checking in incomplete or broken code acts as an incentive to developers to learn to work more incrementally with shorter feedback cycles
  • Why use continuous integration?
  • The classic approach
  • The classic approach ● Write a test program (or be the tester) ● Run the test program (or perform the test yourself) ● Manually verify the output ● Delete the test program
  • A fundamental shift
  • Continuous integration emerged from Extreme programming
  • Question you would like to answer...
  • Does my code work? And Does it still work after I committed new code?
  • Agile approach
  • Write a unit test! ● Executable specification ● Automatic evaluation ● A simple test environment ● Instant feedback ● Used as regression test
  • Detect problems in the earliest possible stage
  • ● Defacto standard for unit testing of PHP applications ● Member of the xUnit family ● Inspired by tools like Junit, TestNG, Junitour, JExample etc. ● Latest stable version 3.4.0 (released 16 September 2009)
  • Things to keep in mind...
  • Unit tests should run in less than 1 ms
  • Software testing categories ● Small – Unit tests ● Check conditional logic in the code ● No debugger required ● Runs in less than 1 ms ● Small – Functional tests ● Check whether the interface between classes abide by their contacts
  • Does PHP Unit only run tests?
  • Other things PHPUnit can do ● Skeleton generation ● Integration of Selennium
  • PHP Unit and code coverage analyses
  • PHP Unit and code coverage analyses ● Helps you with analyzing which statements, branches and paths are executed within the test run: ● Statement coverage ● Branch coverage ● Path coverage ● 100% code coverage is preferred, but does not say anything about the test completeness!
  • Coding standards...
  • PHP Code Sniffer (phpcs)
  • PHP Code Sniffer “Sniffs”... ● PHP ● Javascript ● CSS To detect violations of defined coding standards with as main goal to ensure code remains clean and consistent. Following coding standards are default available: MySource, PHPCS, Zend, PEAR and Squiz
  • An example run
  • Other available tools ● PHP copy/paste detector ● PHP Depend – software metric tool ● PHP Loc – Lines of code analyses ● PHP PMD – Project Mess Detector Note: only copy/paste detection will be part of this presentation
  • Copy/paste detection
  • Code duplication (phpcd) ● Code is marked duplicate when two sequences of code are: ● Textually identical ● Token for token identical ● Functionally identical ● Problems ● Duplication of code contradicts code reuse ● Co-evolution of clones hinders maintenance
  • Example run
  • How it all can be put together?
  • Pick your continuous build environment
  • General mode of operation ● Developer commits code ● Commit triggers a build (initiated by versioning system, or by polling the version system) ● Build script is run ● Output is processed, notification send
  • Cruisecontrol and PHPUndercontrol
  • Ant is used to process the build
  • Remember...
  • A fool with a tool is still a fool!
  • One of the hardest things to express about continuous integration is that makes a fundamental shift to the whole development pattern, one that isn't easy to see if you've never worked in an environment that practices it. In fact most people do see this atmosphere if they are working solo - because then they only integrate with themselves. For many people team development just comes with certain problems that are part of the territory. Continuous integration reduces these problems, in exchange for a certain amount of discipline.
