Writing Tests with Apache::Test
Geoffrey Young, Ticketmaster

Track: Apache
Date: Thursday, July 10
Time: 10:45am - 11:30am
Location: Salon F

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.
