Brian Swan has posted another in his "unit testing on Azure" posts to his blog today. This time he shows how to get VisualPHPUnit running on your Windows Azure installed code.

Last month, I wrote a post that outlined 3 ways to test PHP applications in Windows Azure, and since then I've covered two of those approaches: Running PHPUnit in Windows Azure (uses RDP) and Automating PHPUnit Tests in Windows Azure.
