Google Summer of Code 2007

I am once again happy to participate as a mentor in the Google Summer of Code. This year I am the mentor of Mike Lewis who will implement Mutation Testing for PHPUnit.

Mutation Testing, or Automated Error Seeding, is an approach where the testing tool makes some change to the tested code, runs the tests, and if the tests pass displays a message saying what it changed. This approach is different than code coverage analysis, because it can find code that is executed by the running of tests but not actually tested. It is not meant as a replacement for code coverage analysis, but complementary.

More information can be found here.
To Mike and the other six students who are mentored by the PHP Project: good luck and have fun! Update: Mike will document his work here.
