SCRIPTS

httest is script based. The following script examples can be but into a scripte i.e. sample.htt and can be called like

httest sample.htt

SIMPLE SCRIPT

Get a page and do expect return code 200 OK.

CLIENT
_REQ www.google.ch 80
__GET /search?q=apache HTTP/1.1
__Host: www.google.ch
__
_EXPECT headers "HTTP/1.1 200 OK"
_WAIT
END

CUT AND PAST SCRIPT

Cut and past from a HTTP stream, i.e we cut the apache host to access it in the second request.

CLIENT
_REQ www.google.ch 80
__GET /search?q=apache HTTP/1.1
__Host: www.google.ch
__
_MATCH body ’lt;a href="http://([^\/]*)/" class=lgt;Welcome! - The lt;emgt;Apachelt;/emgt; HTTP Server Project’ APACHE_HOST
_WAIT

_REQ $APACHE_HOST 80 __GET / HTTP/1.1 __Host: $APACHE_HOST __ _WAIT END

CLIENT SERVER SCRIPT

We can hold client and server in the same host. Actually multiple client and multiple server. Very useful to test forward or reverse proxies. Or a webapplication which communicat itself with third party servers i.e. mail server.

This is a very basic selfcontained test you can run on any maschine.

CLIENT
_REQ localhost 8080
__GET /foo HTTP/1.1
__Host: localhost
__
_WAIT
END

SERVER 8080 _RES _EXPECT "/foo" _WAIT __HTTP/1.1 200 OK __Content-Length: AUTO __ __Hello World END

SSL SCRIPT

Of course SSL do also work with httest, just put "SSL:" before port.

CLIENT
_REQ localhost SSL:8080
__GET /foo HTTP/1.1
__Host: localhost
__
_WAIT
END

SERVER SSL:8080 _RES _EXPECT "/foo" _WAIT __HTTP/1.1 200 OK __Content-Length: AUTO __ __Hello World END
