Those interested in unit testing testing might want to take at
wordpress-tests, a test automation engine for Wordpress:
Though it can be used for unit testing, strictly speaking it's an
automated regression test system. Tests are run against a (more or
less) fully functioning, freshly installed copy of Wordpress or
Wordpress-mu, database and all (as opposed to the mock object unit
testing approach taken by Jacob Santos).
The test cases so far (in wp-testcase) are fairly sparse, but should
give an indication of what's possible. They all pass against the
current wordpress trunk.
Basic docs are in the README. Please read the warnings carefully and
keep it well separated from production data - this will nuke your database.
Currently it uses PHPUnit 3, from phpunit.de, though it's designed to be
fairly independent of the unit test framework (it can run on PHPUnit 1
with minor hacking).
I haven't tried yet, but with a bit of tinkering it can probably run
Jacob's tests also.
