Start Testing

[ #31736 ]
I have been in a new role at work (different team but same org) for two months. i was supposed to be doing mostly sysadmin work which is what i was doing before, plus sofeware deployment and some of Perl webapp development ( both i had never done professionally ).

but i started to write Perl app from the day one which i am quite happy. now i just finished the second app. however, it occurred to me that no one here writes much test for their programs( either WebObjects or Perl ). Including me :~.

so my current goal is to learn testing. i have went through few articles from and Test::Tutorial. the ones i found useful are
  • Building Testing Libraries
  • An introduction to Quality Assurance

also found a pdf version of Test::Tutorial (2004 version) which seems to be more content than the CPAN version.

There are lots Test::* modules out there and i am not sure which one is suitable for the usual Database, Form testing. the one s i found may useful are

  • Test::Simple
  • Test::More
  • Devel::Cover
  • Test::Deep
  • Test::WWW::Mechanize

there are bunch of DBD:: mock modules seem good for DB testing.

arr.. i wish i went to the Toronto YAPC testing talks. :)
