A wrapper for DNS name resolving or DNS faking.
resolv_wrapper makes it possible on most UNIX platforms to contact your own DNS implementation in your test environment. It requires socket_wrapper to be able to contact the server. Alternatively, the wrapper is able to fake DNS queries and return valid responses to your application.
If you want to use your own resolv.conf you
can set the environment variable
RESOLV_WRAPPER_CONF to point to a file you
created. The format of the file is defined in the manpage
If you do not have a DNS server running but still want
to be able that your application or a third party library
can do DNS queries, we provide a simple way to do that. All
you have to do is to set the environment variable
It must point to a hosts-like text file that specifies fake records for custom queries. The format of the file looks like this:
TYPE RECORD_NAME RECORD_VALUE
A dc.cwrap.org 127.0.0.10 AAAA dc.cwrap.org fd00::5357:5f0a CNAME kerberos.cwrap.org dc.cwrap.org SRV _kerberos._tcp.cwrap.org kerberos.cwrap.org 88 SOA cwrap.org ns1.cwrap.org admin.cwrap.org 2014100457 3600 300 1814400
The SRV record can optionally also include priority and weight:
SRV _ldap._tcp.cwrap.org ldap.cwrap.org 389 1 5
If unset, the priority defaults to 1 and weight defaults to 100.
