I have a problem that seems a bit strange. No matter how I specify the
controller name in a rails controller rspec I am always presented with
‘HostController Retrieving /host via GET should redirect if not logged
Controller specs need to know what controller is being specified. You
indicate this by passing the controller to describe():
describe MyController do
or by declaring the controller’s name
describe “a MyController” do
controller_name :my #invokes the MyController
This is the result of running this command over this file
Command : spec -c -fs spec/controllers/host_controller_spec.rb
require File.expand_path(File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/spec_helper’)
describe HostController, “Retrieving /host via GET” do
it “should redirect if not logged in” do
#session[:user] = nil
In have tried this with and without the text string after the
controller name on the describe line. I have also tried it with and
without the controller_name directive. It always gives this message.
What am I doing wrong?!?!?
Rails version 2.0.2

Thanks a lot if you can help in any way.
