So the ideal solution would be to stub the external dependency and avoid
the need for an external service. IMHO it is the only way how such a test
can be written and be included into the normal LibreOffice build. All other
solutions require that this will be only run in some special circumstances
(which means in the end never). You can have a look at how Cedric solved
that problem for libcmis if you need some inspiration.

If you need help or need more information how to stub a dependency please
contact me.
