# Test naming convention

The test function name follows the format of Test + the name of the package where the function is placed, with the function name appended after an underscore (_). For example, the Server.Debug.Enable() function is tested in the TestServer_DebugEnable test function. Similarly, the Server.SetupConfig is tested in TestServer_SetupConfig test function.

There are functions like Server.Config() that require more specific tests. That’s why, for example there are TestServer_Config and TestServer_ConfigWithSpecialContext, where in the latter there is more specific functionality being tested.

func TestServer_Config(t *testing.T) {

func TestServer_ConfigWithSpecialContext(t *testing.T) {
