    # Create answers and their params
    @http_agent.respond_to do |mock|
    
      # Answers to get queries to http://api.example.com/users/count?group=students
      # with the string "42"
      mock.get :uri => "http://api.example.com/users/count",
               :parameters => {:group => "students"},
               :body => "42"
    
      # Answers to post queries to http://api.example.com/users/3/activate
      # with the string "true"
      mock.post :uri => "http://api.example.com/users/3/activate",
                :body => "true"
    
      # Answers to post queries to http://api.example.com/users/authentify
      # with the string "Qt5c1HWwCXDhKskMrBqMdQ".
      # This example could be an authentication process
      mock.post   :uri => "http://api.example.com/users/authentify",
                  :parameters   => {:Email => 'jack@bauer.com', :Passwd => 'secure'},
                  :body => "Qt5c1HWwCXDhKskMrBqMdQ"
    
      # Will reply with an http error code of 403 with no body if the post query
      # to http://api.example.com/users/authentify does not have specified parameters.
      mock.error  :uri => "http://api.example.com/users/authentify",
                 :params_not_equal  => {:Email => 'jack@bauer.com', :Passwd => 'secure'},
                 :method => :post,
                 :status => 403
    end
    
    # Now you can use this agent like a real one
    r = mock.get("http://api.example.com/users/count", :group => "students")
    # => WWW::Mechanize::File
    r.body # => "42"
    
    # Posting
    r = mock.post("http://api.example.com/users/authentify",
                  :Email => "jack@bauer.com", :Passwd => "secure")
    r.status # => 200
    r.body   # => "Qt5c1HWwCXDhKskMrBqMdQ"
    
    # Handling errors
    r = mock.post("http://api.example.com/users/authentify",
                  :Email => "jack@bauer.com", :Passwd => "bad")
    r.status # => 403
