Hi, I'm really new to cucumber-testing. I want to use an HTTP Post in my step-definitions using the post-method. When I execute response = post '/controller/action' response is of type Fixnum and contains only the status code returned by the post. In rspec it returns an HTTPResponse-instance. Why is it different? I really need the body of the response. Hope somebody can help me.

Cucumber step definitions (when used with Rails) run in an instance of Rails' ActionController::IntegrationTest. If you read that API you'll see that the #response method gives you access to what you need. If you haven't used WebRat, I strongly recommend you check it out. It's a thin DSL on top of ActionController::IntegrationTest that Cucumber supports out of the box. It lets you write steps on the HTML level rather than the HTTP level. Aslak
