Testing with Sessions (Symfony2)

Today I encountered a problem with our phpunit tests for our symfony2 project. We were having issues with the ‘ErrorException: Notice: A session had already been started – ignoring session_start()’.

So after some googleing I found out that we shouldn’t create our own mock like we did here

$session = $this

But symfony now has their own mock to create a session.

use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Session\Storage\MockArraySessionStorage;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Session\Session;

$session = new Session(new MockArraySessionStorage());

Another problem solved in my day as a junior developer
