I have a question on accessing fixtures by name.
I’m doing integration testing very similar to what is described in
Jamis’s excellent writeup at
The problem is that I am using ordered yml fixtures so that rake loads
each element in the correct sequence. I need to do this because my
‘has_many’ fixtures (ex. templates) need to know the right user_id to
— [ users.yml snippet ] —
— [ templates.yml snippet ] —
All fixtures load into the db in the correct order and everything
works great except…
The problem is that now I can’t reference
users(:zack) which should be prepopulated by loading the fixtures in
my test cases.
Has anyone else run into this? Any ideas?
