Share code between unit and functional tests?

Hi all

I have the following helper that I use both in the unit and functional
tests for my model Page:

class PagesControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

private
def valid_attributes
{ :short_title => “Valid short title”,
:body => “

Valid title

Valid body

”,
:parent_id => nil}
end
end

Is there a convenient way to remove this duplication and source it out
to a file that is loaded by both the unit and the functional test files?

Thanks
Josh

With RSpec, you could use spec_helper; with TestCase, I don’t know if
there’s a standard location.

However, in either case, there’s a better solution to this particular
issue. If you use Machinist, these attributes could go into a named
blueprint.

You can add it to the test_helper.rb file and it will be included in
all your default tests. Alternatively you could simply put it in a
module (in a separate file in RAILS_ROOT/test and then “include” it in
test_helper.rb or the individual test classes as you need.
