Description Trii 2010-06-30 13:35:00 UTC
The 6.9 version from the main website cannot run any phpunit tests due to a space in the application's name an no quoting done of the command line arguments passed to phpunit.

Here is a line from running a single test.

/usr/bin/phpunit --log-junit /var/folders/wG/wGrdprT6HmmuglFInzcWZk+++TI/-Tmp-/nb-phpunit-log.xml --bootstrap /Users/Josh/NetBeansProjects/Breach/MainRepo/tests/testinit.php NetBeansSuite /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans run=/Users/Josh/NetBeansProjects/Breach/MainRepo/tests/application/classes/service/json/IncidentsTest.php

The offending argument is below.

It is because of the space in the app name, Netbeans Previous versions were just called

Quoting that argument makes the command work
Comment 1 Trii 2010-06-30 13:38:33 UTC
Here is the actual output of the command:

Josh:~$ /usr/bin/phpunit --log-junit /var/folders/wG/wGrdprT6HmmuglFInzcWZk+++TI/-Tmp-/nb-phpunit-log.xml --bootstrap /Users/Josh/NetBeansProjects/Breach/MainRepo/tests/testinit.php NetBeansSuite /Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans run=/Users/Josh/NetBeansProjects/Breach/MainRepo/tests/application/classes/service/json/IncidentsTest.php
PHPUnit 3.4.14 by Sebastian Bergmann.

Cannot open file ".//Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans".
Comment 2 Tomas Mysik 2010-06-30 13:55:56 UTC
Do I understand correctly that if a project has a space in its name, PHPUnit support does not work? If not, please, provide exact steps to reproduce.

Comment 3 Trii 2010-06-30 14:01:38 UTC
If any of the path arguments have a space in them it will fail. In my example, the problem is that the default installed app on OS X is:


The space between Netbeans and is causing the shell to treat them as two arguments.

I guess NetBeans makes its own custom PHPUnit suite and stores it in:


When NetBeans passes this argument to phpunit (and all arguments for that matter) it should be quoted so it is treated as a single argument instead of two
Comment 4 Trii 2010-06-30 14:08:02 UTC
Just now I renamed the app and moved it to:

/Application/Netbeans/6.9/ and phpunit via the Test menu option works as expected.
Comment 5 Tomas Mysik 2010-06-30 15:04:40 UTC
I will try to reproduce and fix.
Comment 6 Filip Zamboj 2010-09-15 12:37:49 UTC
batch reassigning
Comment 7 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-03 10:19:04 UTC
Batch reassigning.
Comment 8 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-10 08:15:05 UTC
Right, it seems that the arguments are not quoted automatically. Needs to be fixed.

Petr, can you confirm, please? Or am I wrong?
Comment 10 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-13 11:26:46 UTC
After discussion with Petr, reassigning.

Comment 11 Petr Hejl 2011-06-13 14:19:05 UTC
Fixed in web-main 5f5ad3b12ec3.
Please verify.
Comment 12 Petr Hejl 2011-06-13 14:38:09 UTC
Command itself should be escaped as well: 342f06db94e1
Comment 13 Petr Hejl 2011-06-13 14:51:31 UTC
Executable escaped on windows only 2658c5b6dcf4.
Comment 14 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-14 12:19:09 UTC
Minor fix is needed in PHP project as well.
Comment 15 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-14 12:34:35 UTC
NetBeans test suite fixed (possible quotes taken into account).

Comment 17 Tomas Mysik 2011-06-14 14:32:07 UTC
Reopening since this seems to be a problem specific only for Mac platform (I cannot reproduce on Linux).

Can you please try to reproduce your problem and tell us what are the arguments passed to the _phpunit script itself_? Just open your phpunit script and use "print_r()" function to print command line arguments ($_SERVER['argv']).

Please, reopen this issue and paste the result here.

Thanks for your coopeartion.
Comment 18 Petr Hejl 2011-06-14 14:43:51 UTC
The behavior of EPB reverted to original one 0a0953f22763.
