RailsStory runner - empty response

I generated a new rails app then installed rspec and rspec_on_rails from
trunk.

I then created a sample story:

require File.dirname(FILE) + “/helper”

Story “View Home Page”, %{
As a user
I want to view my home page
So that I can get a birds eye view of the system
}, :type => RailsStory do

Scenario “Publisher with no videos” do

When "visiting", "/" do |page|
  get page
end

Then "viewer should see", "companies/show_initial" do |template|
  response.should have_text(/Welcome/)
end

end

end

When I run the story, I get the error:

kwigger:~/workspace/rspec-stories alvin$ ruby stories/all.rb
Running 1 scenarios:
Story: View Home Page

As a user
I want to view my home page
So that I can get a birds eye view of the system

Scenario: Publisher with no videos

When visiting /

Then viewer should see companies/show_initial
F

1 scenarios: 0 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 pending

I was expecting to see the default rails index page in the response.

Where am I going wrong?

Thanks,
Alvin.

As a user

Where am I going wrong?

Do you see the rails index page when you run the app?

Yes.

Funky. I guess integration tests are going only through the routing
and don’t serve up any plain HTML pages at all.

I created a basic rails integration test for the default welcome page
(public/index.html) and this failed as well: no route found for / or
page not found errors.

I added a basic controller:

class WelcomeController < ApplicationController

def index
render :text => “Welcome alvin”
end
end

The rails integration test works as expected with the welcome
controller.

The RailsStory works as expected with the welcome controller.

Does a rails integration test work without the Welcome Controller?

No.

The RailsStory works as expected with the welcome controller.

Seems to me that the problem might be that the rails testing support
doesn’t handle serving up static pages in the public folder. The Rails
Welcome page is /public/index.html.

WDYT?

Agreed. The rails testing support did not provide access to a static
page.
