This repository is no longer maintanied. As the memory backend is useful mostly for unit-tests and proto-typing, the code has been merged into the https://github.com/rs/rest-layer Git repository, and can be found at import path
github.com/rs/rest-layer/resource/testing/mem. This repository is kept only for allowing old imports paths to work.
This REST Layer resource storage backend stores data in memory with no persistence. This package is provided as an implementation example and a test backend to be used for testing only.
DO NOT USE THIS IN PRODUCTION.
Simply create a memory resource handler per resource:
index.Bind("foo", foo, mem.NewHandler(), resource.DefaultConf)
As local memory access is very fast, this handler is not very useful when it comes to working with latency related issues. This handler allows you to simulate latency by setting an artificial delay:
root.Bind("foo", resource.NewResource(foo, mem.NewSlowHandler(5*time.Second), resource.DefaultConf)
With this configuration, the memory handler will pause 5 seconds before processing every request. If the passed
net/context is canceled during that wait, the handler won't process the request and return the appropriate
rest.Error as specified in the REST Layer storage handler implementation doc.
