i installed silverstripe3.0.3 and made a composer update to install a additional module.

Now my build fails with this message:

[Warning] require_once(PHP/CodeCoverage.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory
Line 23 in /home/.../framework/dev/phpunit/PhpUnitWrapper_3_5.php

Any idea what that could be?

i found the following:
when you download silverstripe3 as zip from the website, it doesnt include tests.

when you make a composer update then, it will update framework & sapphire and fetch also the test dirs.
this will make the build process want to start the tests and if you dont have phpunit fully installed, it will fail, i assume.

could this be?
is phpunit a dependency for silverstripe3?

Hi Ivo,

If you're going to do testing on SS3, I believe you will need phpunit.
