Sometimes I need to set up config XML attributes for automated testing.

For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
        <somenode foo="bar" />

I would like to define this as a fixture as the XML configuration is only needed for executing some tests. Is this possible with EcomDev_PHPUnit?

For now I'm working around the issue by executing this in my setUp method:

Mage::app()->getConfig()->getNode('global/somenode')->addAttribute('foo', 'bar');

Try this in a fixture file:

  global: |
     <somenode foo="bar" />
  • I managed to add an attribute like this, thanks. (And don't I don't get it to work now aynmore. No idea why.) I also need to add a child with a value to somenode. I couldn't do it by mixing XML and fixtures, using fixtures only with config: and config_xml: or using fixtures only using config_xml: with nested tags. I guess I'm doing something wrong. Do you know more about it? Jul 10 '14 at 14:07
