Get generated queries from CakePHP

Seeing queries generated by your framework can be very useful. CakePHP, with its DebugToolbar, you can see the queries generated by your application. However, There is a limit to the Debug Toolbar. It shows a limited list.

Here’s a sure fire way to get all the queries generated:

$this->Model>getDataSource()->getLog(false, false);


Continuous Integration with CakePHP

Continuous Integration is probably one the best things since Testing was developed. CakePHP, along with Symfony and Yii, is one of my favorite when it comes to PHP.

I do Continuous Integration with Circle CI . A fantastic service.

    version: 5.5.11
    - pear config-set auto_discover 1
    - pear install
    - echo "<?php
        class DATABASE_CONFIG {
        public \$test = array(
          'datasource' => 'Database/Mysql',
          'persistent' => false,
          'host' => '',
          'login' => 'ubuntu',
          'password' => '',
          'database' => 'circle_test',
          'prefix' => ''
        }" > app/Config/database.php
    - php ./app/Console/cake.php test app AllModel


For MySQL, Circle CI uses circle_test and ubuntu as a default database and default user, respectively. Circle CI would use PHPUnit with your phpunit.xml if it sees it. However, you can override it like what I did above.
