To analyse the requests that a system makes the proxy can be used to record all requests and their corresponding responses.

Retrieve Recorded Requests

Recorded requests can be retrieved as a list of requests received by the proxy in either JSON or Java code.

HttpRequest[] recordedRequests = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedRequests(
        request()
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedRequests({})
    .then(
        function (recordedRequests) {
            console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedRequests));
        },
        function (error) {
            console.log(error);
        }
    );
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=REQUESTS"
HttpRequest[] recordedRequests = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedRequests(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST")
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080).retrieveRecordedRequests({
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}).then(
    function (recordedRequests) {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedRequests));
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log(error);
    }
);
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=REQUESTS" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}'
String recordedRequests = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedRequests(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST"),
        Format.JAVA
    );
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=REQUESTS&format=JAVA" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path"
}'
String recordedRequests = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedRequests(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST"),
        Format.JSON
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080).retrieveRecordedRequests({
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}).then(
    function (recordedRequests) {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedRequests));
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log(error);
    }
);
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=REQUESTS&format=JSON" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path"
}'

Retrieve Recorded Expectations

Recorded requests-response pairs can be retrieved as a list of expectations containing the request and response that was proxied in either JSON or Java code.

The list of retrieved expectations can be used to setup expectations in MockServer to support mocking.

Expectation[] recordedExpectations = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedExpectations(
        request()
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedExpectations({})
    .then(
        function (recordedExpectations) {
            console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedExpectations));
        },
        function (error) {
            console.log(error);
        }
    );
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=RECORDED_EXPECTATIONS"
Expectation[] recordedExpectations = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedExpectations(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST")
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080).retrieveRecordedExpectations({
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}).then(
    function (recordedExpectations) {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedExpectations));
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log(error);
    }
);
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=RECORDED_EXPECTATIONS" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}'
String recordedExpectations = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedExpectations(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST"),
        Format.JAVA
    );
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=RECORDED_EXPECTATIONS&format=JAVA" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path"
}'
String recordedExpectations = new MockServerClient("localhost", 1080)
    .retrieveRecordedExpectations(
        request()
            .withPath("/some/path")
            .withMethod("POST"),
        Format.JSON
    );
var mockServerClient = require('mockserver-client').mockServerClient;
mockServerClient("localhost", 1080).retrieveRecordedExpectations({
    "path": "/some/path",
    "method": "POST"
}).then(
    function (recordedExpectations) {
        console.log(JSON.stringify(recordedExpectations));
    },
    function (error) {
        console.log(error);
    }
);
curl -v -X PUT "http://localhost:1080/retrieve?type=RECORDED_EXPECTATIONS&format=JSON" -d '{
    "path": "/some/path"
