Symfony2 specifically gives me problems because of its setup.

I am getting this error:


PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in /symfony-path/src/Symfony/Bundle/FrameworkBundle/Controller/Controller.php on line 252


I get this whenever I attempt to test a controller that returns either a rendered Twig template or when I use a controller that uses a service (and that doesn't return a rendered Twig template).

So I'm trying to test controllers, but other than basic PHP it doesn't seem possible.

Is there anything I can do? Is there a way of the controllers being able to access the services? Also, no doubt I'm going to have problems when I try running database queries. Unless I resolve this I see no point in Unit Testing. I'm sure there's an easy solution.

Can you show us how you're trying to test your controller?  Symfony is supposed to be usable with PHPUnit out of the box, and there's a section on it in the official docs.
