Include some REST API into automatic tests. WARNING: Dolibarr 4.0 should be compatible with PHP 7 but more feedbacks are still expected to confirm that. Following changes may create regression for some external modules, but were necessary to make Dolibarr better: - Function log() of class CommandeFournisseur has been removed. Using it is no more required. - Class Resource was renamed into DolResource to avoid conflict with a reserved PHP word. - Method commonobject->add_thumb() has been renamed into commonobject->addThumbs(). - Method select_type_comptes_financiers() has been renamed into selectTypeOfBankAccount() - Property ->client that was deprecated 6 years ago, is replaced in all core code with ->thirdparty. - File '/core/tpl/document_actions_pre_headers.tpl.php' were renamed into '/core/actions_linkedfiles.inc.php'. So if you included it into your module, change your code like this to be compatible with all version: $res=@include_once DOL_DOCUMENT_ROOT . '/core/actions_linkedfiles.inc.php'; if (! $res) include_once DOL_DOCUMENT_ROOT . '/core/tpl/document_actions_pre_headers.tpl.php';
