Getting Started

MockServer allows you to mock any system you integrate with via HTTP or HTTPS (i.e. (REST) services, web sites, etc). Please note that it is a third party project that needs java.

This npm module allows any grunt or node project to easily communicate with a running MockServer instance.

As an addition to this module for communicating with a running MockServer there is a second project that can be used to start and stop a MockServer called mockserver-node.

The MockServer client can be created as follows:

var mockServer = require('mockserver-client'),
    mockServerClient = mockServer.mockServerClient // MockServer and proxy client

Note: this assumes you have an instance of MockServer running on port 1080. For more information on how to do so check mockserver-node.

Setup Expectation

A simple expectation can be set up as follows:

mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .mockSimpleResponse('/somePath', { name: 'value' }, 203)
    .then(
        function(result) {
            // do something next
        }, 
        function(error) {
            // handle error
        }
    );

A more complex expectation can be set up like this:

mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .mockAnyResponse(
        {
            'httpRequest': {
                'method': 'POST',
                'path': '/somePath',
                'queryStringParameters': [
                    {
                        'name': 'test',
                        'values': [ 'true' ]
                    }
                ],
                'body': {
                    'type': "STRING",
                    'value': 'someBody'
                }
            },
            'httpResponse': {
                'statusCode': 200,
                'body': JSON.stringify({ name: 'value' }),
                'delay': {
                    'timeUnit': 'MILLISECONDS',
                    'value': 250
                }
            },
            'times': {
                'remainingTimes': 1,
                'unlimited': false
            }
        }
    )
    .then(
        function(result) {
            // do something next
        }, 
        function(error) {
            // handle error
        }
    );

Verify Requests

It is also possible to verify that request were made:

mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .verify(
        {
            'method': 'POST',
            'path': '/somePath',
            'body': 'someBody'
        }, 
        1, true
    )
    .then(
        function() {
            // do something next
        }, 
        function(failure) {
            // handle verification failure
        }
    );

It is furthermore possible to verify that sequences of requests were made in a specific order:

mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .verifySequence(
        {
            'method': 'POST',
            'path': '/somePathOne',
            'body': 'someBody'
        },
        {
            'method': 'GET',
            'path': '/somePathTwo'
        },
        {
            'method': 'GET',
            'path': '/somePathThree'
        }
    )
    .then(
        function() {
            // do something next
        }, 
        function(failure) {
            // handle verification failure
        }
    );
