A url or site like example.org which always produces a 404 error (and two for 200 and 204)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/09/10

Yesterday I posted this question on StackOverflow and G+: Is there a url or site like example.org which always produces a 404 error?

Soon after that, I found out three links that produce predictable HTTP status codes:

On StackOverflow very few people even noticed the question, probably wondering “why?”.

I’m using these links for positive and negative testing of some http / https handling code that needs to be good at coping with positive and negative responses.

In my testing life, I’ve learned the hard way that both negative and positive tests are core part of your suite, hence the question.

HTTP debugging tools

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/07/15

Any web developer should know how to capture and trace HTTP traffic.

I’ve written about Fiddler before, but that’s a Windows specific tool.

Time to have a small list of posts and links to tools that work on various platforms.

I’ve left out Java based tools as there have been too many security issues with Java over the last couple of years.
