1 simpletest.test SimpleTestBrokenSetUp::setUp()

Sets up a Backdrop site for running functional and integration tests.

Generates a random database prefix and installs Backdrop with the specified installation profile in BackdropWebTestCase::$profile into the prefixed database. Afterwards, installs any additional modules specified by the test.

After installation all caches are flushed and several configuration values are reset to the values of the parent site executing the test, since the default values may be incompatible with the environment in which tests are being executed.


...: List of modules to enable for the duration of the test. This can be either a single array or a variable number of string arguments.

Return value

bool: TRUE if set up completes, FALSE if an error occurred.

Overrides BackdropWebTestCase::setUp

Tests a test case that does not run parent::setUp() in its setUp() method.

    // Create and log in user.
    $admin_user = $this->backdropCreateUser(array('administer unit tests'));
  // If the test is being run from within simpletest, set up the broken test.
  else {
    $this->pass(t('The test setUp() method has been run.'));
    // Don't call parent::setUp(). This should trigger an error message.
