[PATCH] Decode the response in testutil.BrowsingSession

Reported by: PeterRussell Owned by: kskuhlman
Priority: low Milestone: 1.1b2
Component: Documentation Version:
Severity: minor Keywords: needs documentation


At present BrowsingSession.response is an str object, rather than a unicode object. In writing unit tests it is often necessary to test for the presence of a substring within the response, but if the substring is a unicode object, then Python will try to decode the response using the ASCII codec, which will fail if any character in the response is not in ASCII, resulting in the dread UnicodeDecodeError.

The attached patch against the 1.0 branch adds a unicode_response field to the browsing session object if an encoding is specified in the Content-Type header. Tests can use this much more safely.

  • Owner changed from anonymous to kskuhlman

Looks good. Applied in r5176. This needs to be added to the Testing documentation, so leaving ticket open so we don't forget that.

Thanks for the patch!
