[ANN] view_test 0.9.0

[ANN] view_test 0.9.0

view_test is a similar implementation of rspec’s controller and view
specs for test/unit.

It allows you to migrate existing tests one test at a time to create
simpler functional tests
by extracting out all of the view assertions into their own view_test.

Check it out at http://www.continuousthinking.com/tags/view_test

The goal of view_test is to allow people who are using test/unit to
achieve a better level of
testing.

Forgot to point out the right subclass for controllers. The original
post has been updated on
http://www.continuousthinking.com/tags/view_test

Functional tests need to subclass Rails::ControllerTest::TestCase
View tests need to subclass Rails::ViewTest::TestCase

Have you looked at Test::Rails in ZenTest? I think rSpec got several
of its ideas for view testing from there.

I do like your expect_render. May I steal it?

A while back I checked it out, I think I need to give it a better
look.

Does it peacefully coexist with form_test_helper?

I’m naturally incapable of excluding pilot error, but I suspect that
ZenTest’s ViewTestCase and form_test_helper collude to produce a nasty
error. I will reproduce it on request…

Does it peacefully coexist with form_test_helper?
Here’s the ZenTest + form_test_helper code that fails:

class ForumViewTest < Test::Rails::ViewTestCase
self.use_transactional_fixtures = mysql_tests? # true
fixtures :users, :rings

def test_host_ring
login_as :BunBun
render :action => ‘index’

submit_form 'host_ring_form' do |post|
  assert_equal users(:BunBun).id, post['user[id]'].value.to_i
  post['ring_name'] = 'progidy'
end

end

The failure message complains about @session being both deprecated and
already set. It appears below my sig.

The only overt @session assignment I can find in our beloved maze of
metaprogrammed Rails code and plugins is up in ZenTest, but if I
change that to ‘session’ the error persists. I can then add a ‘p
@session’ to anywhere in my test case, and it returns nil.

So should I switch to view_test?

Will do. I didn’t yet because form_test_helper could need the bug
report…

For view tests yes. For functional/controller tests no because the
views are no longer rendered here.

Eric - it definitely did. Initially RSpec’s Rails plugin wrapped
ZenTest, but there were some things that I wanted to do differently so
I took what was needed and broke the dependency. You and Ryan are

Does anyone have a reason for this error message?

rake aborted!
uninitialized constant Mocha::ParameterMatchers

We have sufficient mocha:

$ gem list | grep -i mocha
mocha (0.5.4, 0.5.1)

I will add a require to our test case and keep going…
