NAME

Mock::Apache - mock Apache environment for testing and debugging

SYNOPSIS

    use Mock::Apache;

    my $server  = Mock::Apache->setup_server(param => 'value', ...);
    my $request = $server->new_request(method_name => 'value', ...);

    $server->

DESCRIPTION

Mock::Apache is a mock framework for testing and debugging mod_perl 1.x applications. It is based on Apache::FakeRequest but goes beyond that module, attempting to provide a relatively comprehensive mocking of the mod_perl environment.

The module is still very much at an alpha stage, with much of the Apache::* classes missing.

I am aiming to provide top-level methods to "process a request", by giving the mock apache object enough information about the configuration to identify handlers, etc. Perhaps passing the server_setup method the pathname of an Apache configuration file even and minimally "parsing" it.

METHODS

setup_server

new_request

execute_handler

localizes elements of the %ENV hash
