Testing Our Wildcard Channel

Learn about the testing of different Channels.

Creating tests for our Wildcard Channel

Channels contain much more application logic than Sockets do. This means they will be a bit more involved to test than Sockets. We’ll write tests for our WildcardChannel and DedupeChannel to capture a wide range of testing needs. The amount of testing primitives is relatively low but can still be confusing at first. Keep in mind during our tests that message passing is at the heart of Channels and that the test module uses messages to verify data is sent and received correctly between the test process and a Channel process.

Let’s add tests for our custom join implementation in WildcardChannel. Then we’ll test that a message can be received and replied to.
