     ??? phpunit.xml

Now the question is how to run the tests for the sniffs when the coding
standard is not installed, but PHP_CodeSniffer is installed via PEAR.

I wanted to use AbstractSniffUnitTest.php as base class for my phpunit
test classes, but that class expects the sniff class files in
/usr/share/pear/... because PHP_CodeSniffer is installed there.

Hi Christian, can you give me a bit more info about how you are trying
to run the
tests and what the structure of your code is?

Do you just have your own directory structure, like:

And how are you trying to run the tests? Do you have your own test
suite, or are
you more referring to the fact that there isn't a command you can really
use to run

It is currently not possible to run unit tests for an own ruleset that
has not been installed via PEAR.

This is because AbstractSniffUnitTest.php detects if PHP_CodeSniffer is
installed, and then assumes that the tests to execute are also in the
same path as PHP_CodeSniffer itself.

Now I'd like to run the tests of my not installed ruleset with an
installed version of php_codesniffer :)
