One of the best Phing resources I have come across is the blog of Raphael Stolt. I have used Phing based scripts for backup and code generation, but that is not all you can do with it. As Raphael is showing in its blog, you can use it for unit testing, phplocing (see my post on phploc), refactoring, code sniffing, database generation and so on.

Enable pgpass under Windows 7

Last year I have written a post about enabling pgpass under Windows XP . Today I repeated the procedure for Windows 7. Basically everything worked as before, with the following exception - the APPDATA directory in Win 7 is different. What I did first was to check the name of the user running PostgreSQL server process. Then log in as that user and find out where is the APPDATA directory for that user. echo %APPDATA% From that point on, just follow the instructions in the previous post. Good luck!

PHPUnit 4 on Windows 7

Download phpunit.phar from - Find your php bin directory. In my case it is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Zend\ZendServer\bin Add this directory to your path. In the same php bin directory create .bat file with the following content: @ECHO OFF set PHP_BIN=php.exe set FILE_PATH="C:\path\to\phpunit_phar_file\phpunit.phar" %PHP_BIN% %FILE_PATH% %* Done. phpunit will be available from any location.
