Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
- "Forward-compatible" contributed modules (designed for D7 + D8) cannot use PSR-0 tests.
- Add optional support for PSR-0 tests to Simpletest in D7.
All in contrib? Nope, doesn't work.
The first idea would be to do it all in contrib:
- Use a contrib PSR-0 class loader, e.g. classloader module or xautoload module.
- Write a contrib module that can discover the PSR-0 test classes, and that will register them with hook_simpletest_alter().
This was tried here with xautoload:
This approach does work locally, if the admin makes sure that the respective contrib modules are enabled.
However, it does not work with testbot / PIFR for the automated tests on drupal.org. Why?
- testbot does not install any contrib modules prior to test discovery. (and apparently we cannot force it to do so, or noone really wants that)
- pifr has a custom discovery mechanism which ignores hook_simpletest_alter().
Besides, we don't want to depend too much on contrib.
Proposed solution (topic starter)
- Backport the changes from to make PSR-0 tests possible in contributed modules.
Proposed alternative solution (#26, #29, #34, ff)
Do everything in core, but with minimal custom solutions instead of backported Symfony/D8 components.
- Discovery of PSR-0 test classes in simpletest module.
- Minimal class loading (autoload) solution for PSR-0 test classes in simpletest module.
- Some minor fixes on components that cannot handle class names with backslash (namespace separator).
Notes (refering to the first proposal)
- http://drupal.org/project/classloader is a direct backport of D8's
Note: The Class Loader module might be "merged" into Autoload module (see), but that won't change its implementation.
- d.o testbots will find and support PSR-0 tests as soon as has been deployed.
