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 '\<a href="http://([^\/]*)/" class=l\>Welcome! - The \<em\>Apache\</em\> 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
