NAME ^

Test::Net::RabbitMQ - A mock RabbitMQ implementation for use when testing.

VERSION ^

version 0.11

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Test::Net::RabbitMQ;

    my $mq = Test::Net::RabbitMQ->new;

    $mq->connect;

    $mq->channel_open(1);

    $mq->exchange_declare(1, 'order');
    $mq->queue_declare(1, 'new-orders');

    $mq->queue_bind(1, 'new-orders', 'order', 'order.new');

    $mq->publish(1, 'order.new', 'hello!', { exchange => 'order' });

    $mq->consume(1, 'new-orders');

    my $msg = $mq->recv;
    
    # Or
    
    my $msg = $mq->get(1, 'order.new', {});

DESCRIPTION ^

Test::Net::RabbitMQ is a terrible approximation of using the real thing, but hopefully will allow you to test systems that use Net::RabbitMQ without having to use an actual RabbitMQ instance.

The general overview is that calls to publish pushes a message into one or more queues (or none if there are no bindings) and calls to recv pop them.

CAVEATS ^

This module has all the features I've needed to successfully test our RabbitMQ-using application. Patches are welcome if I'm missing something you need! At the moment there are a number of shortcomings:

recv doesn't block
exchanges are all topic
lots of other stuff!

ATTRIBUTES ^

connectable

If false then any calls to connect will die to emulate a failed connection.

debug

If set to true (which you can do at any time) then a message will be emmitted to STDERR any time a message is added to a queue.

METHODS ^

channel_close($number)

Closes the specific channel.

channel_open($number)

Opens a channel with the specific number.

connect

Connects this instance. Does nothing except set connected to true. Will throw an exception if you've set connectable to false.

consume($channel, $queue)

Sets the queue that will be popped when recv is called.

disconnect

Disconnects this instance by setting connected to false.

exchange_declare($channel, $exchange, $options)

Creates an exchange of the specified name.

tx_select($channel)

Begins a transaction on the specified channel. From this point forward all publish() calls on the channel will be buffered until a call to "tx_commit" or "tx_rollback" is made.

tx_commit($channel)

Commits a transaction on the specified channel, causing all buffered publish() calls to this point to be published.

tx_rollback($channel)

Rolls the transaction back, causing all buffered publish() calls to be wiped.

get ($channel, $queue, $options)

Get a message from the queue, if there is one.

Like Net::RabbitMQ, this will return a hash containing the following information:

     {
       body => 'Magic Transient Payload', # the reconstructed body
       routing_key => 'nr_test_q',        # route the message took
       exchange => 'nr_test_x',           # exchange used
       delivery_tag => 1,                 # (inc'd every recv or get)
       redelivered => 0,                  # always 0
       message_count => 0,                # always 0
     }

queue_bind($channel, $queue, $exchange, $routing_key)

Binds the specified queue to the specified exchange using the provided routing key. Note that, at the moment, this doesn't work with AMQP wildcards. Only with exact matches of the routing key.

queue_declare($channel, $queue, $options)

Creates a queue of the specified name.

queue_unbind($channel, $queue, $exchange, $routing_key)

Unbinds the specified routing key from the provided queue and exchange.

publish($channel, $routing_key, $body, $options)

Publishes the specified body with the supplied routing key. If there is a binding that matches then the message will be added to the appropriate queue(s).

recv

Provided you've called consume then calls to recv will pop the next message of the queue. Note that this method does not block.

Like Net::RabbitMQ, this will return a hash containing the following information:

     {
       body => 'Magic Transient Payload', # the reconstructed body
       routing_key => 'nr_test_q',        # route the message took
       exchange => 'nr_test_x',           # exchange used
       delivery_tag => 1,                 # (inc'd every recv or get)
       consumer_tag => '',                # Always blank currently
       props => $props,                   # hashref sent in
     }
