We are so excited to bring you TestBox 2.0 and MockBox 3.0!  These releases are major releases of our libraries and include not only great features but a new repository home.  TestBox/MockBox have been decoupled from the ColdBox core and are now available standalone only (http://github.com/ortus-solutions/testbox).  They have also been integrated with CommandBox, our new ColdFusion CLI and package manager, to allow you to download, install and even execute tests in the command line.  We have also made available our integration server builds which can also be installed via our CLI.

You can now do this to install TestBox or MockBox.

// install testbox
box install testbox

// install testbox bleeding edge
box install testbox-be

// install mockbox
box install mockbox

// install mockbox bleeding edge
box install mockbox-be

// Execute tests
box testbox run runner="runner path"

// Generate a bdd spec
box testbox create bdd MySpec
