I have the same issue.
This is the first time I've ever tried the PHPUnit test features.

I'm wondering if it works for anyone?

For me it turned out there were other PHP errors that were manifesting in this way. Check your console.

I was getting errors like this:

Code: Select all

Fatal error: Uncaught Exception: Class PHPUnit_Util_Printer called from  spl_autoload_call: invoked from:
	(autoloader code)
	closure: -none- autoloader->php_autoloader("PHPUnit_Util_Printer")

This was in the "Debug Output" window when running a test.

What worked for me was:
  • Adding a PHPUnit Configuration file in the Debug Configuration panel - it should point to your local phpunit.xml
  • Use composer's PHPUnit (composer) checked
The issue appears to be that Zend is attempting to use an older version of PHPUnit which uses the old-style class names; hence the classes aren't found. Adding the phpunit.xml file to the parameters must force Zend to use the locally installed version. I can now run and debug PHPUnit code easily!
No whining.
