This is probably funky…
I’m writing some tests with Test::Unit::TestCase, and I want them to be
data-driven. I want to abstract the assertions to another class (call
it TestIt) more tightly tied to the data.
So far, I either get NoMethodError exceptions because TestIt isn’t
subclassed from Test::Unit::TestCase nor mixes in any of those modules,
or else (if I do subclass or mixin) the assertions test properly but
don’t get counted in the total tally displayed because they’re not being
performed by the main Test::Unit::TestCase subclass.
It seems as though I might be able to address the first somehow with
bindings and closure, but I don’t know how.
In the meantime, I’m trying another approach, but this is an interesting
scenario I’d like to explore more.
Here’s a stripped-down sample:
Each TestIt object includes the data to be tested.
class TestMyStuff < Test::Unit::TestCase
TestVals.each do |t1| # TestVals is an array of TestIt objects
t1.test do |t2|
assert(“Descriptive message”) do
