Description : Test::WWW::Mechanize for Catalyst
Catalyst is an elegant MVC Web Application Framework. Test::WWW::Mechanize is
a subclass of WWW::Mechanize that incorporates features for web application
testing. The Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst module meshes the two to allow
easy testing of Catalyst applications without starting up a web server.
Testing web applications has always been a bit tricky, normally starting a
web server for your application and making real HTTP requests to it.
Test::WWW::Mechanize::Catalyst allows you to test Catalyst web applications
but does not start a server or issue HTTP requests. Instead, it passes the
HTTP request object directly to Catalyst. Thus you do not need to use a real
hostname: "http://localhost/" will do. However, this is optional. The
following two lines of code do exactly the same thing:
Now when stable release is out it's time for cleaning some stuffs in Catalyst
packages. This package is beginning of libcatalyst-modules-perl cleaning.
libcatalyst-modules-perl will contain only packages from Catalyst:: namespace
which are actively developed.
