  • Stuart on PHP - » Comparing ContractLib to PHP’s Built-In assert()
    is much cheaper than using ContractLib today That s to be expected as assert is written in C I imagine that we could get close to the same performance if ContractLib was rewritten in C as a PHP extension But when tests are enabled assert is much slower than ContractLib Why Because the recommended way to use assert is to pass the test in as a string PHP has to convert that string into bytecode to execute and that conversion appears to be quite expensive Given the choice I d rather trade things running a little slower in production for having much faster tests when I m writing code and that s why I created ContractLib Plus I get much better information to understand why the test failed and if I wanted to run the tests in production I can handle their failures in a much saner way Final Words In my experience the time it takes to develop and ship code is normally more critical than how fast the code runs in production Developer time has become a scarcer resource than CPU time Used intelligently these kinds of tests in your code can help your team deliver quicker because the code they are using and reusing is more robust first time around Programming by contract is different to and complements unit testing because contract tests catch errors in using the code Whether you use ContractLib assert or you create your own solution you should really consider how much it is costing you when you don t use these kinds of tests About The Author Stuart has been writing PHP applications since 2003 and has been contributing to open source software since 1994 He was an early writer for php architect a co author of the Official Zend Certification Study Guide for PHP 4 and a regular speaker at conferences and user groups since 2004 When he s not designing software Stuart loves to explore the world through a camera lens spend time with his beloved guitars and continue his study to T ai Chi Chu an Taijiquan No Comments Filip Procházka HosipLan says January 17th 2012 at 10 03 am You should take a look at Assertions that Nette Framework has http doc nette org en validators they are way more advanced and logical than both those tools Stuart Herbert says January 17th 2012 at 11 05 am Thanks I d not come across Nette before My personal feeling is that plain old PHP code is substantially more maintainable than magic validators in the long run but I m sure there are folks out there who might find Nette well worth a look NoxArt says January 17th 2012 at 10 51 am The link to the ContractLib gives me 404 maybe it should have been https github com stuartherbert ContractLib Stuart Herbert says January 17th 2012 at 11 07 am Thanks link is now fixed NoxArt says January 17th 2012 at 10 51 am The link to the ContractLib
