ImapTest Command/Reply Testing Configuration
The tests consist of two files in the test directory:
The test file begins with a header, followed by an empty line and then a list of commands. Messages are appended to the test mailbox from the test.mbox file.
The header contains "key: value" pairs. Allowed keys are:
- capabilities: Space-separated list of capabilities required from the server for this test. If server doesn't have these capabilities, the test is skipped. (FIXME: Checking not done currently)
- connections: Number of connections to use for executing this test. If using 2 or more connections, each command must begin with the connection number which is used for the command (1..n). Default is 1.
- state: nonauth, auth or selected. If selected is used, the mailbox is recreated and test messages are appended to it automatically. Default is selected.
capabilities: CHILDREN LIST-EXTENDED connections: 2 state: auth
There are two ways to configure commands:
1) [<connection #>] OK|NO|BAD <command> [* <tagged reply>] (0 or more)
2) [<connection #> <command> [* <tagged reply>] (0 or more) OK|NO|BAD [<prefix>]
Connection number is used if there are more than one connection. The first way is faster to write, while the second allows matching reply's <prefix>.
# way 1) ok select $mailbox * 0 exists # way 2) select $mailbox * 0 exists 1 ok [read-write]
Commands and replies can have $variables. If a variable doesn't have value when it's matched against server input, the variable is initialized from the server input. This allows doing this like:
ok fetch 1,2 uid * 1 fetch (uid $uid1) * 2 fetch (uid $uid2) ok uid store $uid1,$uid2 flags \seen * 1 fetch (uid $uid1 flags (\seen)) * 2 fetch (uid $uid2 flags (\seen))
There are also some predefined variables:
$mailbox: Mailbox used for testing. box command line parameter specifies this. The default is "imaptest".
