max-attempts-to-connect

[parameter] (max-attempts-to-connect [integer])

Procedures

High level interface

with-test-server
[procedure] (with-test-server server-thunk tests-thunk)

Start the server by executing server-thunk, run the tests (tests-thunk) and stop the server.

Here's a usage example with the awful, test and http-client eggs:

The awful application to be tested:

(use awful)

(define-page "/foo"
  (lambda ()
    "foo")
  no-template: #t)

The test program:

(use server-test awful http-client test)

;; The awful application to be tested
(awful-apps (list "foo.scm"))

(with-test-server
 (lambda ()
   (awful-start
    (lambda ()
      (load-apps (awful-apps)))))
 (lambda ()   
   (test "foo"
         (with-input-from-request "http://localhost:8080/foo"
                                  #f
                                  read-string))))

Low level interface

start-test-server
[procedure] (start-test-server thunk)

Start the test server and returns its pid. thunk is the procedure which actually runs the server.

stop-test-server
[procedure] (stop-server pid)

Stops the server whose pid is the given pid.
