HTTP Test Tool
The htt provides a large variety of HTTP-related functionality, useful for implementing all kinds of HTTP-based tests
- Advanced HTTP protocol handling, including ne-grained timeout handling, request and response validation
- Simulating clients and servers, including startup and shutdown of server daemons. This allows to create mock-ups of back-end systems in more complex test situations, for example when the tested application needs to interact with a 3rd-party back-end system which is not available in the testing environment.
- Execution of external commandline tools, using their output as request or response data, or for validation purposes.
- Copying stream data e.g. from a response and re-using it in variables.
