SMS::Send::Test - SMS::Send International-Class Testing Driver


  # Create a testing sender
  my $send = SMS::Send->new( 'Test' );
  # Clear the message trap
  # Send a message
      text => 'Hi there',
      to   => '+61 (4) 1234 5678',
  # Get the message from the trap
  my @messages = $send->messages;


SMS::Send supports two classes of drivers.

An international class named in the format SMS::Send::Foo, which only accept international numbers in +1 XXX XXXXX format, and regional-context drivers in the format SMS::Send::XX::Foo which will also accept a non-leading-plus number in the format applicable within that region (in the above case, Australia).

SMS::Send::Test is the testing driver for the international class of drivers. Except for the name, it is otherwise identical to SMS::Send::AU::Test.

Its two roles are firstly to always exist (be installed) and secondly to act as a "trap" for messages. Messages sent via SMS::Send::Test always succeed, and the messages can be recovered for testing after sending.

Note that the trap is done on a per-driver-handle basis, and is not shared between multiple driver handles.


SMS::Send::Test inherits all the methods of the parent SMS::Send::Driver class, and adds the following.


The messages method retrieves as a list all of the messages in the message trap.


The clear method clears the message trap. This should be done before each chunk of test code to ensure you are starting from a known state.

Returns true as a convenience.
