Controller tests fail to parse route based on resource

Hello list,

I have a controller example that looks like this:

it 'Should update (PUT /users/:id)' do
  @attributes = @user.attributes
  @attributes[:firstname] = "Another one"
  lambda {
    put user_url(@user),@attributes
    User.find(@user.id).firstname == @attributes[:firstname]
    response.should redirect_to(users_path)
  }.should_not raise_error
end

However, this fails with the following error message

ActionController::UnknownAction in 'UsersController#update on (snip)
No action responded to /users/89/edit. Actions: (snip)

I’m not sure why it is not routing PUT /users/:id to
UsersController#update.
Any ideas?

The workaround I have as of now is to:

post :update, {:id => @user.id, :user => @attributes}, which works fine,
but
not RESTful.

Cheers,

Marcelo.

What happens if you change that to

put :update, …

?

Hi Phillip,

The code is actually post :update, I have mistyped there. But that’s not
the
issue.

The problem is when I try to use the Rails-generated resource method:
put
user_url(@user). It does generate the URL correctly (
http://test.domain/users/int where int is any integer) but it fails to
actually map this to UsersController#update:

PUT /users/:id should map to controller => ‘users’,:action => ‘update’:

But I get the following error when in the controlle test example (the
put
user_url(@user)):

ActionController::
UnknownAction in 'UsersController#update on (snip)
No action responded to /users/89. Actions: (snip)

Thanks,

Marcelo.
