Farewell J4Schema

All things come to an end, and extensions aren't an exception. J4Schema was my first extension, created back in 2012; it was a very interesting experience and it taught me a lot about Joomla environment, however now it's completely obsolete.

Mocking PHP native functions


As you might know, currently I'm writing a lot of tests.

While we are not fan of the 100% Code Coverage dogma, we are trying to cover our code as much as possible.
Using namespaces, containers and dependency injections helps a lot, however there are some edge cases where you really can't test it.

I'm talking about PHP native functions: how can you simulate a specific time? Or if there is a problem while opening a file?
