NAME ^

AnyEvent::MockTCPServer - Mock TCP Server using AnyEvent

VERSION ^

version 1.142230

SYNOPSIS ^

  use AnyEvent::MockTCPServer qw/:all/;
  my $cv = AnyEvent->condvar;
  my $server =
    AnyEvent::MockTCPServer->new(connections =>
                                 [
                                  [ # first connection
                                   [ recv => 'HELLO', 'wait for "HELLO"' ],
                                   [ sleep => 0.1, 'wait 0.1s' ],
                                   [ code => sub { $cv->send('done') },
                                     'send "done" with condvar' ],
                                   [ send => 'BYE', 'send "BYE"' ],
                                   # ...
                                  ],
                                  [ # second connection
                                   # ...
                                  ]],

                                );

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides a TCP server with a set of defined behaviours for use in testing of TCP clients. It is intended to be use when testing AnyEvent TCP client interfaces.

METHODS ^

new(%parameters)

Constructs a new AnyEvent::MockTCPServer object. The parameter hash can contain values for the following keys:

connections

A list reference containing elements for each expected connection. Each element is another list reference contain action elements. Each action element is a list with an action method name and any arguments to the action method. By convention, the final argument to the action method should be a description. See the action method descriptions for the other arguments.

host

The host IP that the server should listen on. Default is the IPv4 loopback address, 127.0.0.1.

port

The port that the server should listen on. Default is to pick a free port.

timeout

The timeout for IO operations in seconds. Default is 2 seconds.

on_timeout

The callback to call when a timeout occurs. Default is to die with message "server timeout\n".

listening()

Condvar that is notified when the mock server is ready. The value received is an array reference containing the address and port that the server is listening on.

connect_address()

An array reference containing the address and port that the server is listening on. This method blocks on the "listening()" condvar until the server is listening.

connect_host()

The address that the server is listening on. This method blocks on the "listening()" condvar until the server is listening.

connect_port()

The port that the server is listening on. This method blocks on the "listening()" condvar until the server is listening.

connect_string()

A string containing the address and port that the server is listening on separated by a colon, ':'. This method blocks on the "listening()" condvar until the server is listening.

finished_cv()

Condvar that is notified when the mock server has completed processing of all the expected connections.

next_action($handle, $actions)

Internal method called by the action methods when the server should proceed with the next action. Must be called by any action methods written in subclasses of this class.

ACTION METHOD ARGUMENTS ^

These methods (and methods added by derived classes) can be used in action lists passed via the constructor connections parameter. The $handle and $actions arguments should be omitted from the action lists as they are supplied by the framework.

ACTION METHODS ^

send($handle, $actions, $send, $desc)

Sends the payload, $send, to the client.

packsend($handle, $actions, $send, $desc)

Sends the payload, $send, to the client after removing whitespace and packing it with 'H*'. This method is equivalent to the "send($handle, $actions, $send, $desc)" method when passed the packed string but debug messages contain the unpacked strings are easier to read.

recv($handle, $actions, $expect, $desc)

Waits for the data $expect from the client.

recvline($handle, $actions, $expect, $desc)

Waits for a line of data $expect from the client. See AnyEvent::Handle for the definition of 'line'.

packrecv($handle, $actions, $expect, $desc)

Removes whitespace and packs the string $expect with 'H*' and then waits for the resulting data from the client. This method is equivalent to the "recv($handle, $actions, $expect, $desc)" method when passed the packed string but debug messages contain the unpacked strings are easier to read.

sleep($handle, $actions, $interval, $desc)

Causes the server to sleep for $interval seconds.

code($handle, $actions, $code, $desc)

Causes the server to execute the code reference with the client handle as the first argument.
