Assert fails with <false> is not true

Hi,

I have a simple model and written a testcase.

class Product < ActiveRecord::Base
validates_presense_of :name
end

class ProductTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
fixtures :products

def test_invalid
product = Product.new
assert !product.valid?
end
end

The testcase fails with a message,
is not true.

What is wrong with the testcase? I can see it ruby console that
“product.valid?” returns false…so “assert !product.valid?” should
return true…

Any clues what is wrong?

Thanks.

The test case is telling you that product.valid? is returning true.
Have you actually checked the return value?

Hi,

“assert_valid product” passes…meaning the product.valid? is returning
“true” in the test case. :frowning:

But if I check this in ruby console, product.valid? returns “false” and
I can see all “invalid” errors…but something is weird!

Any ideas what else I should check?

Thanks.

Hi,

I think you need to have it read
product = Product.create
not
product = Product.new

Strangely I have this behavior only in the “product” model, the “user”
model works as expected!
