I'm working on an application that reaches out to a web service. I'd like to develop a proxy class that returns a fake response from the service, so I don't have to constantly be hitting it with requests while I'm developing/testing other parts of the app. My application is expecting a response generated via Net::HTTP. response = Net::HTTP.get(URI.parse('http://foo.com')) case response when Net::HTTPOK # do something fun when Net::HTTPUnauthorized # you get the idea How can I manufacture a response object, give it all the right headers, return a body string, etc? I assumed I need to use Net::HTTPResponse, but I can't find any documentation on creating an instance without going through a request. I'd like it to work like this: response = ProxyClass.response_object case response when Net::HTTPOk # my app doesn't know it's being lied to Thanks.
