`add_example_group': undefined method `deprecate' for Spec:Module (NoMethodError)


#1

I’m the getting the following error when running rspec on a rails
project.

/Users/vanweerd/work2/innerplate/vendor/plugins/rspec/lib/spec/runner/
formatter/base_formatter.rb:52:in add_example_group': undefined methoddeprecate’ for Spec:Module (NoMethodError)
from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.2.2/lib/spec/runner/
reporter.rb:14:in add_example_group' from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.2.2/lib/spec/runner/ reporter.rb:13:ineach’
from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.2.2/lib/spec/runner/
reporter.rb:13:in add_example_group' from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.2.2/lib/spec/example/ example_group_methods.rb:116:innotify’
from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.2.2/lib/spec/example/
example_group_methods.rb:97:in `run’

The method is:
# Deprecated - use example_group_started instead
def add_example_group(example_group_proxy)
Spec.deprecate(“BaseFormatter#add_example_group”,
“BaseFormatter#example_group_started”)
example_group_started(example_group_proxy)
end

I’m wondering if the issue is the base_formatter.rb is referencing the
gem instead of the reporter.rb installed under the rails project
vendor/plugins/rspec directory?

This is on a rails 2.3.2 project with the restful authentication
plugin.

Thanks,
Nick

That’s definitely the issue. May I recommend that you get rid of the
plugin and install as a gem?

Thanks. I did that after finding the gem section on your site.
Things look better now.

Thanks,
