Rspec 2 and Rails 3 - missing template

Hello,

I am following the example in the Rspec book, starting page 372, where a
controller’s create message is spec’d.

it “creates a new message” do
Message.should_receive(:new).with(“text” => “a quick brown
fox” )
post :create, :message => { “text” => “a quick brown fox” }
end

When i run this spec, the test is not being run and a ‘Missing Template’
error is thrown.

Failure/Error: post :create, :question => { “text” =>“a quick brown fox”
}
Missing template messages/create with {:locale=>[:en, :en],
:handlers=>[:haml, :rjs, :builder, :rhtml, :erb, :rxml],
:formats=>[:html]}
in view paths “/myapps/app/views”

I am using Rspec 2, Rails 3 and Haml.

Did anybody else have this issue? Has something changed in the Rspec
api,
but it hasn’t been updated in the book?

Thanks,

The book has not been updated to Rails 3, nor does
rspec-rails-2.0.0.beta.8 provide isolation from view templates.

Please use the versions cited in the book as you go through the book.

Thank you for the fast response. What’s the best way to handle the
scenario
described with Rails 3, Rspec 2?

touch messages/create.html.haml :slight_smile:

Keep in mind that once rails 3 and rspec 2 go final, we’ll have this
worked out. Everything’s still in beta (and in progress) right now.

touch messages/create.html.haml :slight_smile:

or, rather:

touch app/views/messages/create.html.haml

Great! Thanks.

Will Rspec 2 provide isolation from view templates or is this a design
change?

There will be some sort of view isolation, but the jury is out on how it
will work. I’m hopeful it will feel exactly like it does in
rspec-rails-1.
