Recall a example inside another (just like in Cucumber)

Hello guys,

I was spec’ing a model and just tried to do something like this

it "should create a payment with period_start & period_end set

correctly" do
it “should create a new payment for an approved transaction”

    previous_payment = Payment.find(Payment.last.id-1)
    just_created_payment = Payment.last
    #Here, check below for a documentation of how period_start and
    #period_end should be set as of now:
    payment.period_start.should == previous_payment.period_end
    payment.period_end.should ==  previous_payment.period_end +

(@subscription.billing_cycle.months).months

  end

Calling an already defined example, since this one requires all the
tests/objects from the “should created a new payment for an approved
transaction”.

I know I could just recreted all objects locally or just use a before
block,
but I think it would be useful if we could do like this just like
Cucumber
allows with steps.

Cheers,

Marcelo.

Why not move the code that’s common to the two examples out into a
before block?

Or a shared example? I haven’t used them much, so I’m only guessing that
it would work.
