Testing controller and action with parameters

I have an action and I am testing it like this:

The action:

def create
@event = Evento.new(params[:event])
@event.aproved = false
if @event.save
redirect_to :action => “index”
else
render :action => “new”
end
end

The RSpec test:

before do
@event = mock_model(Event)
Event.stub!(:new).and_return(@event)
@event.stub!(:aproved=).and_return(false)
@event.stub!(:save).and_return(true)
end

it “should register some event and keep it not aproved” do
Event.should_receive(:new).once
@event.should_receive(:aproved=).once
@event.should_receive(:save).once
get “create”
response.should redirect_to :action => ‘index’
end

It seems to be working for me and the test is passing, by I think this
test is still ugly or probabily can be improved.

How do you make tests like this?

Use stub instead of stub! (which will eventually be deprecated)

@event.stub!(:aproved=).and_return(false)
@event.stub!(:save).and_return(true)

You can add the method stubs to the mock_model declaration:

@event = mock_model(Event, :approved= => false, :save => true)

end

it “should register some event and keep it not aproved” do

The word “and” in an example’s name suggests too many things are being
spec’d in one example. I’d split these out into “registers the event”
and “leaves the event un-approved”
