We are excited to announce a new minor version release of TestBox version 4.3.x. To install just use CommandBox: install testbox --saveDev or to update your TestBox installation update testbox.

This update includes several cool new features and improvements that will delight your testing life! For example, we have integrated your favorite code editors to the simple reporter so you can now open the line of code that failed your test or created and exception!

You can avoid installing testbox in production by using the `install --production` CommandBox command.

What's New With 4.3.0

TestBox v4.3.0 includes several new features and bug fixes. Here are the release notes and major areas of improvements.

New Text Reporters

This release has revamped the text and mintext reporters. Check them out by adding reporter=text or reporter=mintext when running your tests.

Editor URL Integrations

The simple reporter has been updated to add editor opening integration. Now all the tag contexts and traces are links and will open in your favorite IDE of choice. You can control the editor by using the url.editor parameter in the URL or via your runner.

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series Part 4: More Integration

Integrating ColdBox with Existing Code Series Part 4: More Integration

Recently I did a webinar on Refactoring Legacy Code and the question came up about whether or not it was possible to use Coldbox with existing code without converting everything to a Coldbox module or making changes to the existing codebase. In the first installation in this series, we took a tour of the various elements which make up ColdBox. In the second installation, we looked at creating layouts, views, and routes in the main site. In this installation, we’re going to start incorporating our existing code base and do so using a module.
