A unit test tests your code without your code’s dependencies, whereas an integration test tests your code integrated with its dependencies.
- WordPress – as it’s outside of your code.
- An external API – such as Stripe, PayPal, a help desk, weather, population, demographics, etc.
- An external package you embedded into your plugin, theme, or application, such as Guzzle, CMB2, Fulcrum’s Extender module, or Fulcrum’s Config module.
- A reusable module that you or your company built and tested separately.
In a unit test, you are testing the expected behavior for the given conditions of your code. You fake out or simulate the dependencies. We can do this using:
Then after you complete your unit tests and you are confident in your code, you build your integration tests. Here you are testing your code’s interactions with its different dependencies.
