Rails 2.0 functional tests fail, Testscenario changed?

Hi everybody

may be somebody has a hint for that issue, that costs me now hours and
hours and finally it will be a tiny thing, I guess.
Anyway thank you very much in advance for helping here.

Our Approach:
Admin and Backend is seperated through a namespace filestructure
“admin”. Actually everything works fine,
except the Functional Tests.
What should a admin/posts_controller_test.rb look like, when I want to
have an admin/posts_controller.rb?

My File Structure

app/posts_controller.rb
app/admin/posts_controller.rb

test/posts_controller_test.rb
test/admin/posts_controller_test.rb

when I setup my admin test I get always these errors,…

  1. Error:
    test_should_update_post(Admin::PostsControllerTest):
    NameError: uninitialized constant PostsController

1 tests, 0 assertions, 0 failures, 1 error

my testfile looks like that:

class Admin::PostsControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

Replace this with your real tests.

def test_should_update_posts
put :update, :id => posts(:one).id, :posts => { }
assert_redirected_to posts_path(assigns(:posts))
end

end

I think it is a namespace issue only,
but I couldn’t figure it out how and why it (doesn’t)works, so I
wondered if there changed some things in Rails 2.0?

Any help is really really appreciated

best regards

Rails tries to figure out the name of the controller (the aim is to
factor out the pretty much identical setup method in all functional
tests).
You can override what it thinks it should test like so

class FooTest < ActionController::TestCase
tests MyControllerClass
end

That said, i’ve just tried it out with namespaced controllers and it
works without modifications. What’s in admin/post_controller ?

Is it really this as opposed to:

app/controllers/posts_controller.rb
app/controllers/admin/posts_controller.rb

test/posts_controller_test.rb
test/admin/posts_controller_test.rb

These also look suspicious, since controller tests normally go under
test/functional. I’ve become a RSpec guy, so I’m not sure where a
namespaced controller test is supposed to go in the test hierarchy.
