Net::DBus::Test::MockConnection - mock connection object for unit testing
use Net::DBus; my $bus = Net::DBus->test # Register a service, and the objec to be tested use MyObject my $service = $bus->export_service("org.example.MyService"); my $object = MyObject->new($service); # Acquire the service & do tests my $remote_service = $bus->get_service('org.example.MyService'); my $remote_object = $service->get_object("/org/example/MyObjct"); # This traverses the mock connection, eventually # invoking 'testSomething' on the $object above. $remote_object->testSomething()
This object provides a fake implementation of the Net::DBus::Binding::Connection enabling a pure 'in-memory' message bus to be mocked up. This is intended to facilitate creation of unit tests for services which would otherwise need to call out to other object on a live message bus. It is used as a companion to the Net::DBus::Test::MockObject module which is how fake objects are to be provided on the fake bus.
It doesn't completely replicate the API of Net::DBus::Binding::Connection, merely enough to make the high level bindings work in a test scenario.
