CFUnit switches to subversion

In preparation for its upcoming version, v2.0, the CFUnit project has switched to Subversion version control system.

Subversion will provide a number of improvements over the previous version control system, CVS. Switching to this version control system will help coordinate the changes planned for the next version of CFUnit, and provide easier access to potential contributes.

The previous CVS repository will be retained temporarily for historical purposes, but all future development will be done via the new system. ... read more

CFUnit is now offering to highlight projects that have used its testing framework. CFUnit is an xUnit testing framework for ColdFusion, modeled after the popular JUnit framework.

CFUnit releases its first Release Candidate

CFUnit has released v0.5, its first Release Candidate. CFUnit is a xUnit testing framework for ColdFusion, modeled after the popular JUnit framework.

CFUnit was revived last August and has grown extensively since then in both functionality and in community interest. This is largely because of the recognition from industry leaders such as Ben Forta (http://www.forta.com/blog/index.cfm?mode=e&entry=1765) and Jonathan Cogley (http://weblogs.asp.net/jcogley/archive/2005/10/13/427372.aspx)... read more

CFUnit Now Supports ColdFusion Template Testing

CFUnit now supports testing against CFML Templates (*.cfm files) and CF Modules. CFUnit is a unit testing framework for ColdFusion, modeled after the popular JUnit framework.

In the most recent release, there has been two new methods added, assertOutputs(), and generateOutputs(). With these methods it is easy for a ColdFusion developer to test templates and modules. For more information, see the help documentation on testing templates with CFUnit:

CFUnit Beta Release!

CFUnit has released its first Beta version. CFUnit is a unit testing framework for ColdFusion, modeled after the popular JUnit framework.

CFUnit was revived in August as an Alpha release and has been slowly refined since then. In this release there is better assertion logic, and the few known bugs have been resolved.

It is hoped that this version will be the bases for our first stable/production release, which we hope to release within the next few months. We are currently in need of ColdFusion developers who can download and use the framework in their own work to help us improve and refine the project even further.... read more

CFUnit New Release (v0.2)

A new version of CFUnit has been released. This version is easier to install, and therefore I hope it will make distributing it easier.

This release is easier to install for two reasons. First, there are no more references to the Junit framework, so there is no longer a need for the Junit.jar file to be downloaded and installed. The second reason is that the TestRunner CFC was moved to the framework folder, making the framework more stable and portable.... read more

CFUnit Web Site Launched

The new web site is about as basic as a site can be, after all everything has to start somewhere. But as basic as it is, it will hopefully help build some more interest in the CFUnit project.

A CFUnit logo is also in the works which we can incorporate into the page and other CFUnit material. I will also be looking into more interesting page designs, so feel free to post your suggestions in the CFUnit forums.... read more

Three New How-To Documents

Posted by Robert Blackburn 2005-09-01

CFUnit Alpha (v0.1) has been released.

This version is just a starting point, but is stable. This version only supports components, and has room to grow. But this will give everyone something to try out and hopefully provide some great suggestions for improvement.

Project Revived!

CFUnit has been revived. As of August 4th, 2005 CFUnit has new project leadership and will soon begin to see some changes.

This project is looking for developers/testers that would be willing to contribute some time to refining this initial release.

There is now an alpha release of the project which has been working for a few weeks. This release will be committed the CVS soon so that we can begin to receive some feedback. This initial release will be focused on simple getting a working framework running, and writing enough help documentation to make the tool usable. The initial release will also probably only include a testing framework for ColdFusion Components. CFML templates, customer tags, and modules may come later.... read more
