PHPUnit Preferences

The PHPUnit Preferences page allows you to configure your PHPUnit Library Path and set the PHPUnit's communication port.
 PHP Unit tests are a way of constantly testing your code to ensure the right output is being generated each time.

For more on PHP Unit Testing, see the PHPUnit Testing Tutorial.

The PHPUnit Preferences page is accessed from Window | Preferences | PHP | PHPUnit.
