SimpleTest is an open source unit test framework for the PHP programming language and was created by Marcus Baker. The test structure is similar to JUnit/PHPUnit. SimpleTest supports mock objects and can be used to automate the regression testing of web applications with a scriptable HTTP Client that can parse HTML pages and simulate things like clicking on links and submitting forms.


The following file HelloWorld.php, located in the framework folder, will test its own presence and the absence of another file successfully:

class TestHelloWorld extends UnitTestCase {
	function TestFilesExistence() {
