Hi,

Can I know the best debugging mechanism that can be used in ruby on
rails application?

Thank You,

seriously.

writing good tests.

How do you debug your tests then? By writing other tests?
Tests may show you the need to debug that’s it.

shall we need to have test cases for every methods that were implemented
in the application ?

I test anything that I think needs testing, public or private (not that
I actually use private, I have methods I consider private). If it is
of sufficient complexity (usually anything that flogs more than a couple
points, I write tests for it.

Generally it is sufficient to test only the public methods of your
implementation, but to ensure good coverage it is often easier to test
the
non-public helper methods.

When you are ensuring that your application is tested it is necessary to
test every code path, which is why you will end up with more tests
methods
than public methods.

If you do it right, you don’t ever debug. Whenever you set a breakpoint
and then look at a variable, you should be writing a test instead. It is
harder to explain than it is to sit down, pair, and show. If you’re ever
in Seattle, come by Seattle.rb.
