Xdebug and PHPUnit Flies

Posted by Double Compile on Tuesday, October 23. 2007 in PHP

Taking note of blog entries from Derek Rethans and Sebastian Bergmann about speed improvements to PHPUnit's use of Xdebug for code coverage analysis, I obtained the latest copies of each.

Running the full code coverage report for all Xyster tests used to take about 15 minutes on my modest hardware.  The new versions of these libraries reduced that time to under 2 minutes.  I was floored.

Well done, boys!  Anyone running or using either library should definitely upgrade.
