Asynchronous Tests

jasmine-node includes an alternate syntax for writing asynchronous tests. Accepting a done callback in the specification will trigger jasmine-node to run the test asynchronously waiting until the done() callback is called.

    it("should respond with hello world", function(done) {
      request("http://localhost:3000/hello", function(error, response, body){
        expect(body).toEqual("hello world");
        done();
      });
    });

An asynchronous test will fail after 5000 ms if done() is not called. This timeout can be changed by setting jasmine.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_INTERVAL or by passing a timeout interval in the specification.

it("should respond with hello world", function(done) {
  request("http://localhost:3000/hello", function(error, response, body){
    done();
  }, 250);  // timeout after 250 ms
});
