I am a little confused by the includes I suspect. In the book, it states that runtime environment will load the directories app, app/models, app/controllers, app/helpers, app/apis, components, config, lib, vendor and vendor/rails/*. However, when I try to access my "current_project" public method, it fails with a NoMethodError. What is even stranger is that I can use reflection to find that the method is indeed there. For instance, this code: def test_should_login_and_redirect ApplicationHelper.public_instance_methods.each do |method| if method == "current_project" puts "calling " + method puts ApplicationHelper.send(method) end end ... Will find the method but then when it is called, it will still complain yeilding: Loaded suite test/functional/account_controller_test Started ..calling current_project E Finished in 0.172 seconds. 1) Error: test_should_login_and_redirect(AccountControllerTest): NoMethodError: undefined method `current_project' for ApplicationHelper:Module test/functional/account_controller_test.rb:31:in `send' test/functional/account_controller_test.rb:31:in `test_should_login_and_redirect' test/functional/account_controller_test.rb:28:in `each' test/functional/account_controller_test.rb:28:in `test_should_login_and_redirect' 3 tests, 4 assertions, 0 failures, 1 errors So I am really confused how it can know the module is there, be able to find the method in question and then claim to not know the method at all. If anyone knows the trick to getting the helpers to be called from the tests, that would be really appreciated. -- Regards, Ian C.
