#60551 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

WordPress test lib isn't compatible with latest phpunit

Reported by: jujuguru's profile jujuguru Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 6.4.3
Component: Build/Test Tools Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Current setup:
PHP version 8.2.15
WordPress version 6.4.3
PHPUnit version 11.0.3

Trying to get unit testing for plugin development running but there is a call to a deprecated/no-longer present method the following file:


Error: Call to undefined method PHPUnit\Util\Test::parseTestMethodAnnotations()


What I discovered
Strictly this a breaking change in the PHPUnit codebase implied by the class annotation:

@internal This class is not covered by the backward compatibility promise for PHPUnit.

The method parseTestMethodAnnotations() was present upto and including 9.6.16 of PHPUnit however the file underwent a massive change and it's not been present since 10.0.0.

Comment out the call to PHPUnit\Util\Test::parseTestMethodAnnotations() in abstact-testcase.php and the tests will run with a deprecation warning related to metadata and annotations but that doesn't affect this issue. I don't at this stage know if there's any other side effects as a result of this workaround.
