NAME

       Net::LDAP::Server::Test - test Net::LDAP code

SYNOPSIS

           use Test::More tests => 10;
           use Net::LDAP::Server::Test;

           ok( my $server = Net::LDAP::Server::Test->new(8080),
                   "test LDAP server spawned");

           # connect to port 8080 with your Net::LDAP code.
           ok(my $ldap = Net::LDAP->new( 'localhost', port => 8080 ),
                    "new LDAP connection" );

           # ... test stuff with $ldap ...

           # server will exit when you call final LDAP unbind().
           ok($ldap->unbind(), "LDAP server unbound");

DESCRIPTION

       Now you can test your Net::LDAP code without having a real LDAP server available.

METHODS

       Only one user-level method is implemented: new().

   new( port, key_value_args )
       Create a new server. Basically this just fork()s a child process listing on port and
       handling requests using Net::LDAP::Server.

       port defaults to 10636.

       port may be an IO::Socket object listening to a local port.

       key_value_args may be:

       data
           data is optional data to return from the Net::LDAP search() function.  Typically it
           would be an array ref of Net::LDAP::Entry objects.

       auto_schema
           A true value means the add(), modify() and delete() methods will store internal in-
           memory data based on DN values, so that search() will mimic working on a real LDAP
           schema.

       active_directory
           Work in Active Directory mode. This means that entries are automatically assigned a
           objectSID, and some effort is made to mimic the member/memberOf linking between AD
           Users and Groups.

       new() will croak() if there was a problem fork()ing a new server.

       Returns a Net::LDAP::Server::Test object, which is just a blessed reference to the PID of
       the forked server.

   stop
       Calls waitpid() on the server's associated child process.  You may find it helpful to call
       this method explicitly, especially if you are creating multiple servers in the same test.
       Otherwise, this method is typically not needed and may even cause your tests to hang
       indefinitely if they die prematurely. YMMV.

       To prevent waitpid() from blocking and hanging your test server, it is wrapped in an
       alarm() call, which will wait 2 seconds and then call kill() on the reluctant pid. You
       have been warned.

   port_is_open
       Returns an IO::Socket (or subclass) for the current server port.  If the port is already
       in use, this is a false value.
