I’m builing a REST API in Symfony and I’d like to test it with Behat (using Mink and the behat extension for symfony2). There’s no problem for the GET methods, I just “mock” some database objects, use the “I am on ” step definition and check the response.
But when it comes to test if the post of a certain element works I don’t know how to send post params with Mink. I know it could be done with i.e. Guzzle but I think it would be much better doing it through Mink and the Symfony extension.
What I’m looking for is the way to define a step such as
When I POST to <url> the following data: | field1 | field2 | field3 | | value1 | value2 | value3 |
Is there any easy way to send this using Mink? Thanks!
You should do it like this:
$session->getDriver()->getClient()->request ('POST', $url, $postdata);
This is what mink uses for its
visit method only using get instead of post
