ScalatestRouteTest ignoring withRequestTimeout in Route #952

In this code for example, similar to the code in the akka-http documentation:

path("test") {
  withRequestTimeout(100 millis) {
    onSuccess(Future { Thread.sleep(300) }) {

If I then write a test like such:

Get("/test") ~> route ~> check {
  status shouldBe ServiceUnavailable

I get a log WARN saying "withRequestTimeout was used in route however no request-timeout is set!"
and the test fails with "200 OK was not equal to 503 Service Unavailable"

However if I test this manually, say with Postman, it works as expected.

Needless to say, I didn't find documentation for this or comments of this happening to someone else anywhere on the internet.

This is because a route test like this avoids starting the real http server, the ticket that would solve it is: #39

Basically, if you want to test timeouts or "the entire http stack" you should start the full http server in your test nowadays.

I'll keep the issue open but the solution is the linked Issue I believe.
