Testing APIs in CodeIgniter 2.x using phpunit and Guzzle Http client

Sometimes we have apis implemented in our application and there are different levels at which these can be tested.

1. Unit tested at model level to check the logic is working fine
2. Tested at API call level to ascertain whether all the apis as expected are working and are returning data as expected.

Today, we will be learning how to test APIs in CodeIgniter 2.x version using phpunit and Guzzle Http client.

Basically Guzzle Http client is a client used to make http client requests.


"Guzzle is a PHP HTTP client that makes it easy to send HTTP …

MySQL Conference 2008

Once again I spent a week in the San Francisco Bay Area. This time around it was for LugRadio Live USA 2008 and the MySQL Conference & Expo 2008.

The next morning I left the hotel around 7:00 in the morning for a genuine experience of what they call public transportation in the bay area. It took me three hours to travel the distance of …

Giuseppe is a Charmer

And not just a data charmer:

"Old school technologists don't think kindly of PHP. Its adepts are believed to be sloppy programmers that create brittle applications. It takes programmers like Sebastian Bergmann to level the score and to show that a good programmer is shown by best practices, not by the choice of language.
The best thing a good programmer can do while developing an application is testing. Sebastian shows why you should do it, and how. Not only that, it will show you how easy it is. At the end of this session you will wonder how could you have survived for years without unit testing.
PHP programmers, mark your calendars!"

My presentation on PHPUnit is his …

Speaking at MySQL Conference 2008

I will present a session on Testing PHP/MySQL Applications with PHPUnit/DbUnit at the MySQL Conference & Expo 2008 that is held April 14-17 2008 in Santa Clara, CA, US.Testing PHP/MySQL Applications with PHPUnit/DbUnit
In the last decade, PHP has developed from a niche language for adding dynamic functionality to small websites to a powerful tool making strong inroads into large-scale Web systems. Critical business logic like this needs to work correctly. But how do you ensure that it does? You test it, of course.

To make code testing viable, good tool support is needed. This is where PHPUnit comes into …

From Monday to Wednesday we at eZ Systems AS had our internal developers conference in Skien, Norway.

On Thursday and Friday the eZ publish conference 2006 took place.

During the conference I met with Sébastien Hordeaux of WaterProof SARL, the …

International PHP Conference 2004

I just returned home after attending the International PHP Conference 2004 and MySQL ComCon Europe 2004 conferences.

After a convenient ride with the ICE-3 high-speed train from Siegburg to Frankfurt am Main / Airport (about 40 minutes) and a short ride with a shuttle bus to the hotel (about 10 minutes) I arrived at the conference venue just in time for the first coffee break of the day.

Following the first "Hello!"s with my fellow PHP developers …
