Testing Without Virtual Application

The BaseTestCase leverages an internal virtual ColdBox application so you can do integration testing. Meaning that whenever you extend from the BaseTestCase the virtual ColdBox will be loaded. However, you can tell the testing framework to NOT load it by using the this.loadColdBox variable:

component extends="coldbox.system.testing.BaseTestCase"{
// Do not load the Virtual Application
this.loadColdBox = false;
}

This is a great approach if you still want to leverage the base test case for unit testing but without loading the entire virtual application.
