NAME ^

Test::WWW::Mechanize::JSON - Add a JSON and AJAXy methods to the super-class

SYNOPSIS ^

        use Test::More 'no_plan';
        use_ok("Test::WWW::Mechanize::JSON") or BAIL_OUT;
        my $MECH = Test::WWW::Mechanize::JSON->new(
                noproxy => 1,
                etc     => 'other-params-for-Test::WWW::Mechanize',
        );
        $MECH->get('http://example.com/json');
        my $json_as_perl = $MECH->json_ok or BAIL_OUT Dumper $MECH->response;
        $MECH->diag_json;

DESCRIPTION ^

Extends Test::WWW::Mechanize to test JSON content in response bodies and x-json headers.

It adds a few HTTP verbs to Mechanize, for convenience.

METHODS: HTTP VERBS

$mech->put

An HTTP 'put' request, extending HTTP::Request::Common.

At the time of wriring, modules that rely on HTTP::Request::Common treat PUT as a type of GET, when the spec says it is really a type of POST:

        The fundamental difference between the POST and PUT
        requests is reflected in the different meaning of
        the Request-URI.
                        HTTP specification

$mech->delete

An HTTP 'delete' request, extending HTTP::Request::Common.

$mech->options

An HTTP 'options' request, extending HTTP::Request::Common.

$mech->head

An HTTP 'head' request, using HTTP::Request::Common.

METHODS: ASSERTIONS

$mech->json_ok($desc)

Tests that the last received resopnse body is valid JSON.

A default description of "Got JSON from $url" or "Not JSON from $url" is used if none if provided.

Returns the JSON object, that you may perform further tests upon it.

$mech->x_json_ok($desc)

As $mech-json_ok($desc)> but examines the x-json header.

any_json_ok( $desc )

Like the other JSON methods, but passes if the response contained JSON in the content or x-json header.

$mech->diag_json

Like diag, but renders the JSON of body the last request with indentation.

$mech->diag_x_json

Like diag, but renders the JSON from the x-json header of the last request with indentation.

$mech->utf8_ok( $desc )

Passes if the last response contained a charset=utf-8 definition in its content-type header.
