I’m writing a script to connect to an external server. The problem is
that the server can be flaky and respond with an error code on some
requests. When the response I get is an error I would like to retry
connecting. If I retry 10 times and fail to connect, I just abort.
With mocha I can test the case where each of the 10 attempts receives an
error code, but I can’t figure out a way to stub HTTP so that it will
return an error only 1 or 2 times, and then return a success. Anyone
know a good way to test receiving an error a few times and then
receiving a success?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
