Subject Re: network/message simulation framework?

Thanks Jonathan.

this provides a way to essentially get a copy of the outgoing messages,
the messages onto the real connections still go through, but I would need a
way
to shut off the real connections too.

shutting off the connections could probably done by mocking the
TCPconnection class,
but an even more difficult thing is that the ThriftSocket etc will need to
open a java.net.Socket, which
hooks onto the real IP address and port, in  a simulation environment, we'd
need to
mock out the java.net.Socket too, that sounds more difficult.
