Automated Testing uses one computer program to test another computer program. In Joomla, we use PHP test programs to test our PHP Joomla code. With automated tests, we can run a set of tests repeatedly, and as often as we like.

I am a Achal Aggarwal from India entitled as "GSOCer" or better I form it "JGSOCer" for 2013 summer. I am all set to code away this summer with Joomla. I am working on form field library so that it match up with standards of HTML5 and can provide developers an option to deisgn form elements in a more descriptive way.
Every time I needed to create a new website, the first option that sprang to mind was always Joomla!. So it came natural to get involved and help with the development of the open-source project that in turn helped me so much when I needed it.
I'm so pleased to be a part of Joomla community in this summer and help out with development while obtaining a great exposure to the open source and web development areas. Through this project I would like to help out Joomla users as well as the developers to get the maximum out of the Joomla modules.
As you may know, this last summer I was elected for the Google Summer of Code program and I created a Languages Installer Tool for Joomla! CMS. Now this project has become a reality in Joomla 2.5.7 and 3.0, and more features will be coming soon...
The original goal of my project was to integrate a Workflow engine in Joomla, which I did. Then, we figured out it will be better and more interesting to rewrite the foundations of a new one (to master the techniques and extend it the way we want).
I am happy to say that I have completed implementing the library for the platform and system plugin for the CMS to enable library functionality on CMS.
