Test Request

This is something that I seem to forget how to do every time I need it.

If you have your unit tests set up properly, you should have a self.portal available inside your test class. self.portal has a request in it already, that can be accessed with self.portal.REQUEST.

The current trend in Plone is to use lower case request methods, but this isn’t currently available in this location. I would not be surprised if, in a few releases, self.portal.REQUEST becomes self.portal.request. In the meantime, self.portal.REQUEST works great for testing views.
