Project Structure

The files in this project are organized as follows:

php-annotations         This README and the LGPL license
    /annotations        The core of the library itself
      /standard         Standard library of annotation classes
  /demo                 Browser-based example/demonstration
  /docs                 Documentation files (http://php-annotations.readthedocs.org/en/latest/)
  /test                 Unit tests for the core of the library
    /test.php           Test suite runner
    /annotations        Fixture Annotation types
    /lib                Unit test library
    /runtime            Run-time cache folder used for tests
    /suite              Test cases

The "mindplay" folder is the only folder required for the annotation framework itself - other folders contain demonstration code, tests, etc.

To run the test suite, run "php-annotations/test/test.php" from a browser - a summary of the test-results will be displayed on the page.
