Test::HTTP::Server::Simple - Test::More functions for HTTP::Server::Simple
use base qw/Test::HTTP::Server::Simple HTTP::Server::Simple/;
use Test::More tests => 42;
my $s = My::WebServer->new;
my $url_root = $s->started_ok("start up my web server);
# connect to "$url_root/cool/site" and test with Test::WWW::Mechanize,
# Test::HTML::Tidy, etc
This mixin class provides methods to test an HTTP::Server::Simple-based web server. Currently, it provides only one such method: started_ok.
started_ok takes an optional test description. The server needs to have been configured (specifically, its port needs to have been set), but it should not have been run or backgrounded. started_ok calls background on the server, which forks it to run in the background. Test::HTTP::Server::Simple takes care of killing the server when your test script dies, even if you kill your test script with an interrupt. started_ok returns the URL http://localhost:$port which you can use to connect to your server.
Note that if the child process dies, or never gets around to listening for connections, this just hangs. (This may be fixed in a future version.)
Also, it probably won't work if you use a custom Net::Server in your server.
Returns the PIDs of the processes which have been started. Since multiple test servers can be running at one, be aware that this returns a list.
Test::Builder, HTTP::Server::Simple, NEXT.
Installs an interrupt signal handler, which may override any that another part of your program has installed.
