I’ve heard about TDD, read about TDD, and now I’m trying to practice it.
However, I’m getting stuck trying to do a simple test in rails 2.2.2.
I’ve decided to try writing a simple functional test to test the
‘add_item’ action of my cart controller.
However, I got as far as this before my test was already not running:
test “should add an item to the cart” do
My cart controller uses two ‘fake’ models (cart_session,
cart_session_line_item) that aren’t activerecords. however i’m getting
this error message:
ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: SQLite3::SQLException: no such table:
on_line_items: DELETE FROM “cart_session_line_items” WHERE 1=1
for the life of me, I don’t understand why my test would be hitting the
database yet when my test body is blank and why it thinks that
cart_session_line_item is an activerecord when it’s not wired up as
i know TDD is a good thing, and any help would be greatly appreciated!
