Hartl rails tutorial need help - regd "Test-driven development" introduction

Hi,

I am getting some unexpected error which is not mentioned in the rails
tutorials(http://ruby.railstutorial.org/chapters/static-pages#sec-TDD) I
am following :

(arup~>sample_app)$ bundle exec rspec spec/requests/static_pages_spec.rb
F

Failures:

  1. Static pages Home page should have the content ‘Sample App’
    Failure/Error: expect(page).to have_content(‘Sample App’)
    expected #has_content?(“Sample App”) to return true, got false

    ./spec/requests/static_pages_spec.rb:9:in `block (3 levels) in

<top (required)>’

Finished in 0.04079 seconds
1 example, 1 failure

Failed examples:

rspec ./spec/requests/static_pages_spec.rb:7 # Static pages Home page
should have the content ‘Sample App’

Randomized with seed 23303

=================

expected #has_content?(“Sample App”) to return true, got false is
not mentioned in the tutorial. What did I wrong?

please post the test code you’re trying to run. also, unless it’s a lot
of
text, add the html for the page you’re testing.

the test is looking at the html being returned by the rails controller
to
see if it has the text “Sample App” in it and it’s failing because it’s
not
finding that text. the code for the test is around:
/spec/requests/static_pages_
spec.rb:7

The initial exercise shows text for a failing test - that text isn’t
exactly what you’ve posted in your results but the meaning is the same -
it
can’t find “Sample App” in the response. have you written the code to
make
the test pass yet? you may be trying to be too literal in the tutorial
and
sometimes different versions of testing frameworks or versions of
rails/ruby etc can affect some of those details. not sure if that’s
what’s
happening here but i don’t see a huge disconnect from what you’ve
reported
and what the tutorial is expressing.

hth,

Boot up the server and look at the page in your browser. See if the
phrase
“Sample App” is on it (case sensitive), or if there’s a nice big red
error
message.

Sorry! For the confusions.

I expect it to fail. What made me confused is - expected
#has_content?(“Sample App”) to return true, got false
. Because the
tutorial is not showing this in the fail results. why does it come for
my case. That was my question. See the error as attached which was
mentioned in tutorial.
