Integration testing without cucumber

I need to create some integration tests without cucumber. Can anyone
point me in the right direction for how to do that in rails? I tried
creating specs under ‘spec/integration/’ but no matchers are being
included. I also tried rspec_integration plugin (http://github.com/
tricycle/rspec-integration) but that only defines a few matchers and
response.should be_success doesn’t work properly.

Any help you can provide would be much appreciated!

You should not need any magic to get rspec working.

In order to run integration specs I’ve been using a very simple
spec_helper.rb.

Maybe this can be some help to you;

Try adding this to spec/spec_helper.rb

Spec::Runner.configure {|c| c.include Spec::Matchers}

Belwo is a spec that when used with the default spec_helper fails
with:

NoMethodError in ‘test matchers should be able to find be_success’
undefined method `be_success’ for
#ActionController::Integration::Session:0x7fc081ef13e0


require ‘spec_helper’

describe “test matchers” do
it “should be able to find be_success” do
get ‘/’
response.should be_success
end

end

Looks like I spoke too soon. I made a mistake when testing your
suggest. When I add that I still get the same failure.

That fixed it! Thanks!

Any idea why that was needed for integration specs and not MVCs?

Let me start by saying thank you for the time you are spending helping
me.

It appears to be a rails version issue. I ran though the same steps
you outlined on my machine and continued to get the same error
message, “undefined method `be_success’”. I am running rspec 1.3.0,
rspec-rails 1.3.2, rails 2.3.4. When I upgraded to rails 2.3.5 and
tried again, everything worked.

The project I am working on is frozen at rails 2.1.2 so am still
looking for a way to get this to work with rails 2.1.2. Should I
downgrade to an earlier version of RSpec or spec-rails? If so, which
one?

I just did the following using rails 2.3.5, rspec 1.3.2 and rspec-rails
1.3.0:

$ rails foo
$ cd foo
$ script/generate rspec
$ mkdir spec/integration
$ script/generate integration_spec widgets
$ rake db:migrate && db:test:prepare

Then I modified spec/integration/widgets_spec.rb as follows:

require ‘spec_helper’

describe “Widgets” do
it “shows me the list” do
get “/widgets”
response.should be_success
end
end

Then I ran this:

$ script/spec spec/integration/

And here’s the output I saw:

F

‘Widgets …’ FAILED
expected success? to return true, got false
/Users/dchelimsky/tmp/foo/spec/integration/widgets_spec.rb:6:

So everything is working as it should on a fresh app. Did you update
spec/spec_helper.rb the last time you upgraded the app? Are you using
an earlier version of rspec-rails or rspec?

Bug filed. Any idea about an earlier version that I might try?

1.3.2 is tested against the last fix release of each series: 2.3.5,
2.2.2, 2.1.2, 2.0.5. So it should work with 2.1.2. If not, it’s a bug,
so go ahead and file a bug report at http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com -
feel free to reference this thread.

David
