golang appengine api测试错误“ appengine:NewContext传递了未知的http.Request”

I'm using appengine and golang to develop simple RESTful APIs. The code works fine when I start service using goapp serve, and I started writing the unit test functions to test the API endpoints, and I'm struck here with the panic error appengine: NewContext passed an unknown http.Request. I'm getting this error when i run goapp test.

It looks like for some reason, i'm not able to pass the request that I created and pass it to appengine.NewContext()

Below is the snippet of the code..

body := strings.NewReader("")

request, err := http.NewRequest("GET", "endpoint url", body) //inst.NewRequest("GET", goalUrl, body) //
if err != nil {

c := appengine.NewContext(request) // ERROR: appengine: NewContext passed an unknown http.Request

I have created a simple reproducible code. Can you help me with this? or Does anyone have their golang API project on appengine, and have unit test functions to test the endpoints, i'll like to take a look at their code...

Here is the gitlab issue that I posted, which has all the required details of the issue along with examples and detailed error message. Thank for all your help.

    Apologies for the delay in response. I was working on the solution myself

    Here is how I solved the go appengine unit tests issue: the complete solution code can be found on this github repo branch.

    In the *_test.go file, I have used the following.

    • httptest.NewServer(..) to create a new instance of the test server. also used to capture the base url of the service which is used in preparing the request object.
    • aetest.NewContext() to create a new context for testing purpose
    • http.NewRequest(..) to create the new request
    • gorilla's context.Set(..) to assign key ("Context"), value (context created in above step) to the request created above
    • httptest.NewRecorder() a new recorder to save the results
    • http.Handler.ServeHTTP(..) passing the recorded and request. used to make the API request

    For each API handler code, instead of directly creating the new context using appengine.NewContext, I have code described in the below sudocode

    using the gorilla's context.GetOk(..), check 
        IF the received request object has the key "Context"
        THEN using value of that key as the context
        ELSE derive context using appengine.NewContext(r)

    I have wrapped the reusable functionality into a separate library called aeunittest and used it in my code.

    With this setup, i'm, able to run the goapp test to fire the unit tests. see the solved code for complete details of the solution.

    Here is the blogpost that helped me find this solution. Thanks a lot Mark. TESTING GO HTTP HANDLERS IN GOOGLE APP ENGINE WITH MUX AND HIGHER ORDER FUNCTIONS.
