Is there a problem with webrat?


#1

webrat (0.3.4)

I have this in the view:

Just An Entity 000001 Show Entity Edit Entity Destroy Entity This Is a Bare Entity <\div>

I have this in my test:

my_entity = Entity.find_by_entity_name(
“my entity number #{row.hll_words_to_i}”)

within(“div#” + dom_id(my_entity, :list)) do
puts “within method executed for div”
end

within(“div#” + dom_id(my_entity, :list)) do
click_link “Destroy Entity”
end

The first within method prints the trace message

The second within method call blows up with:

within method executed for div
When I delete the “first” entity #
features/app/models/entities/step_definitions/entity_steps.rb:128

Now, I am reasonably sure that the div selector is working as expected.
It is the click_link method that is failing for some reason. Is this
failure caused by something I have done or is it some problem with
webrat?

It was something I did that was very, very wrong…
