[wp-hackers] plugins unit testing

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to learn unit testing and use it properly in our plugins (about  
time..). First thing I've learned so far is that I need to write better  
code in order to test it :)

I've managed to setup tests and environment thanks to the *amazing* wp-cli  
but I can't figure out how to test several things.

Example: one of our plugins deals with uploads filenames; while I can test  
some step and method on debug strings, can I simulate a real file upload  
process and test if my plugins plays nice with every hook? Can I create a  
debug post and test save_post hooks, or this is out of the testing scope?

Thank you!
