Disabling database access in controller specs

It took a while, but now I an totally convinced that controller specs
should
not access the database and stub as much as possible. I’m committed to
that
style of writing, yet from time to time I incidentally allow it to
happen.

Is there a way to err on the safe side and have RSpec throw an error
every
time a controller spec attempts to access the database?

And does it sound like a good idea?

Thanks,
Stefan

You could use something like NullDb to achieve this, I think:
