No more @controller.expects in Test::Unit?

Hi,

In my functional tests it was convenient to use:

@controller.expects(:admin?).at_least_once.returns(true)

to simulate requests which come from an admin user. But it seems that in
Rails 2.3.8 it’s gone away. What replaces it now?

Thanks

Anyone? Currently my apps are running test less because I can’t use
expects or whatever method to stub out some behavior.

Where could I find relevant information about that?

Up, it’s important. Nobody uses functional tests here?

Should still work. What happens instead? What version were you
migrating from? That stuff is setup by ActionController::TestCase

Hi Fred,

Here is some code:

require ‘test_helper’

class Admin::OrdersControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

def setup
@controller = Admin::OrdersController.new
@request = ActionController::TestRequest.new
@response = ActionController::TestResponse.new
@controller.expects(:admin?).at_least_once.returns(true)
@order = Factory.order
end

def test_index
get :index
assert_response :success
end
end

And here is the error message:

  1. Error:
    test_index(Admin::OrdersControllerTest):
    NoMethodError: undefined method `expects’ for
    #<Admin::OrdersController:0x229a32c @real_format=nil>

Do you explicitly require mocha somewhere?

I don’t use mocha. Did rails delegate the stubbing to mocha recently? So
that could be my missing piece of the puzzle. Where should I require it
in? test_helper.rb?

By the way you no longer need to setup @controller/@request/@response -
actioncontroller::testcase does that for you

Indeed, I’ll update my tests accordingly, thanks for pointing that out.

class Admin::OrdersControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

def setup
@controller = Admin::OrdersController.new
@request = ActionController::TestRequest.new
@response = ActionController::TestResponse.new
@controller.expects(:admin?).at_least_once.returns(true)
@order = Factory.order

It seems that simply installing the mocha gem solved my problem.

it always has, but rails may have been accidentally requiring it for
you

That makes sense. Thanks Fred.
