NAME

Test::Role - test that a class or object performs a role

SYNOPSIS

 use Test::Role;

 use Foo;
 does_ok(Foo, 'bar');

 my $foo = Foo->new;
 does_ok($foo, 'bar');

DESCRIPTION

Test::Role provides a test for classes and object that implement roles using the Class::Roles module.

Test::Role exports a single function does_ok. does_ok takes two required arguments: a class or object and a role which that class or object must perform. A third optional argument may be used to provide a more specific name of what is being testing (for example 'Test customer'). in the absence of this argument, 'the object' will be used instead.

Test::Role is implemented using Test::Builder, so it's tests integrate seamlessly with other test modules such as Test::More and Test::Exception.

TODO

Update once Class::Roles (by chromatic) and Class::Role (another 'trait' implementation by Luke Palmer) are merged in the near future.
