I am trying to write a test for my delete method.

I find a User in the db by its id, do the delete action, then I want to
see if it is still in the db.

How do I check that the User IS Deleted without causing errors?

** My Test ********************************
  def test_delete_user
    user = User.find(2)
    post :delete_user, {:id =>}
    assert_equal "User deleted", flash[:notice]
    assert_nil    User.find(2)
    assert_redirected_to :action => 'manage_users'
** The Error *******************************
  1) Error:
ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound: Couldn't find User with ID=2
    test/functional/admin_controller_test.rb:140:in `test_delete_user'

14 tests, 109 assertions, 0 failures, 1 errors

assert_raise(ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound) { User.find( }

Right from the AWDR book
