component provides a simple way to stub out any physical endpoints while in development or testing, allowing you for example to run a route without needing to actually connect to a specific SMTP
endpoint. Just add stub:
in front of any endpoint URI to stub out the endpoint.
Internally the Stub component creates VM
endpoints. The main difference between Stub
is that VM
will validate the URI and parameters you give it, so putting vm: in front of a typical URI with query arguments will usually fail. Stub won't though, as it basically ignores all query parameters to let you quickly stub out one or more endpoints in your route temporarily.
