Tests make your life easier, and Apache::Test makes writing live webserver tests easy.
The Apache::Test framework is arguably one of the best things to emerge from the mod_perl 2.0 redesign effort. All you need to do is write the tests and *poof* Apache::Test takes care of configuring and starting the server, running your tests, stopping the server, and reporting back your successes (or failures).
Young introduces the Apache::Test interface and details how to let it make your life easier. We will step thought the processes of writing a complete test suite for a simple Apache:: module, from generating the Makefile.PL to deciding which aspects of our module ought to be tested--everything you need to be able to start writing tests for your neglected web applications.
