Strange mock_model behaviour with ActiveResource model

Hi,

I have two models in an app that inherit from ActiveResource::Base.
The scaffold controller tests for one of the models works fine, but
the other one dies when calling mock_model in the “handling GET
/fa_codes” spec:

Specifically, the call to mock model here:

before do
@fa_code = mock_model(FaCode)
FaCode.stub!(:find).and_return([@fa_code])
end

generates this failure:

NameError in ‘FaCodesController handling GET /fa_codes should assign
the found fa_codes for the view’
uninitialized constant Spec::Rails::Initializer
(eval):11:in class' /home/jhughes/dev/rj/gump_rewrite/vendor/plugins/rspec_on_rails/lib/spec/rails/dsl/behaviour/rails_example.rb:85:inadd_stubs’
/home/jhughes/dev/rj/gump_rewrite/vendor/plugins/rspec_on_rails/lib/spec/rails/dsl/behaviour/rails_example.rb:73:in
`mock_model’
./spec/controllers/fa_codes_controller_spec.rb:64:

This is with edge rails, trunk rspec and rspec_on_rails. I might have
pegged this as some Ares wierdness, but there are two models with the
same setup, and only one dies like this.

Any ideas?

Can you post your entire:

it “should assign the found fa_codes for the view” block? as well as
your fa_code controller? perhaps pastie it and link.

That appears to be the spec failing.

Hi Brian,

It’s actually all of the it blocks inside the “describe
FaCodesController, “handling GET /fa_codes” do” block – and, if they
weren’t commented out right now, all of these describe blocks all fail
in the same way:

describe FaCodesController, “handling GET /fa_codes.xml” do
describe FaCodesController, “handling GET /fa_codes/1” do
describe FaCodesController, “handling GET /fa_codes/1.xml” do

Here’s the model, controller_spec and controller:

FYI, I tried changing the base class of the model to
ActiveRecord::Base and got the same error.

Never mind. User error.
