Hi,

I was wondering if someone could tell me where to start for testing a web application which i think is now finished.  There is a limited amount of OOP involved, most of the php files are just plain scripts.  I should have started using unit testing, but is it too late? do i need to convert most of the scripts to OOP? are there any tools to test input fields on a browser? performance testing tools?

thanks in advance

Agree with the recommendations of selenium and phpunit.  You might also want to make a Google search for "code coverage maps" and going forward, this article may suggest some ideas that would be useful. (#protip: Build the test data before you build the code)
