PHPUnit: Assert/mock a method for consecutive calls

I’m testing a class that is calling a method twice and with different parameters. I want to assert that this method (addSourceLinkAndUpdateCounts) is called twice and with different argument for each call.

The matcher to use is the “InvokedAtIndex”. See PHPUnit 3.6 documentation

Following, an example (the method addSourceLinkAndUpdateCounts is mocked and I assert that is called twice. The first time with arguments (http://www.link1.com, 12), and the second time with arguments (http://www.link2.com, 12)

// assert save function is called twice and with the two args
        $this->object
             ->expects($this->exactly(2))
             ->method('addSourceLinkAndUpdateCounts')
        ;

        // assert calls return the two links
        $this->object
             ->expects($this->at(1))
             ->method('addSourceLinkAndUpdateCounts')
             ->with('http://www.link1.com', 12)
        ;

        $this->object
             ->expects($this->at(2))
             ->method('addSourceLinkAndUpdateCounts')
             ->with('http://www.link2.com', 12)
        ;

  1. Hi,
    nice example. Just one thing – the calls are indexed from 0, so the first time you need to use $this->at(0), then $this->at(1) and so on :).
