New PDF Ref Cards for TestBox

Brad Wood
Dec 18, 2013

 

To compliment the release of ColdBox 3.8 which now comes bundled with our very own testing library TestBox, we're also release our next two PDF ref cards.  These are a nice readable version of our BDD primer and xUnit primer for you download to a mobile device for offline reading or print them as a reference to keep at your desk.  

TestBox is a xUnit style and behavior-driven development (BDD) testing framework for CFML (ColdFusion). It does not depend on any other framework for operation and it has a clean and descriptive syntax that will make you giggle when writing your tests. It ships with not only the xUnit and BDD testing capabilities, but also an assertions and expectations library, several different runners, reporters and MockBox, for mocking and stubbing capabilities.  If you're already using MXUnit, good news- TestBox is fully backward compatible to help upgrade you to a fresh platform with new capabilities with as little effort as possible.

Questions about how to install or use TestBox can be posted on our active ColdBox mailing list.  And if you like these PDF guides, check out the growing list of PDF references in our docs.
