Any news on the rSpec books?

I admit it, when it comes to rSpec, I’m lazy. I’ve made a few feeble
attempts to use it, but for once I’m waiting for a book-length
treatment. At least two books were announced, I think. Can anyone in
the know please report on their progress?

Thanks
Michael

I sent an inquiry to Prag Bookshelf but didn’t hear anything – saw
something online that led me to believe they were the publisher.

PeepCode has several RSpec screencasts.

There are three I know about, one of which I’m working on (Prag
Bookshelf). I can tell you the one I’m working on will be in beta
sometime in the next few months, but I can’t really be any more
specific than that right now. I can assure you that as things get more
specific I’ll be blogging about it like crazy.

Cheers,
David

We’ve enlisted the help of three more authors: Dan N., Bryan
Helmkamp and Zach D… Dan is going to contribute a BDD overview.
Bryan and Zach are working on the section on using RSpec with Rails.
I’m wrapping up a rather detailed tutorial.

We don’t have a date certain on this, but we are definitely making
rapid progress at this point. I’ll keep the list posted.

Cheers,
David

Aidy Lewis (who posts on here from time to time) and I were using
RSpec at a .NET shop, using the story runner as a layer over Watir
to drive ASP.NET websites, and I know Aidy is still carrying on with
that work.

I’d suggest including a chapter about how to drive non-ruby apps
through RSpec might broaden the book’s appeal.

Great idea. Thanks!

There are also some success stories around using rspec story runner +
jruby
as a functional testing layer for Java apps. Someone blogged about it a
while ago but I forget who.
