I'm trying to set my request body in my tests (the application is a web service that takes large XML files in PUT requests). If you do this: put :update, :body => xml You get a request with an empty body, and a field in the header called "body" set to the XML. You can set the body date in controller specs by calling request.env['RAW_POST_DATA'] = xml But that doesn't work in stories (request is nil), and it's not very elegant, anyway. Does anyone know how to set a request body in a scenario step?

I don't know if you're aware of it, but assuming you're testing a Rails app, your scenario steps are running inside a Rails ActionController::Integration::Session The documentation for the #put method is here: http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActionControlle...
