Undefined method 'post'

Hello all,
I am facing a strange problem.
I have generated rspec for a particular project.Similarly created a spec
controller.Under that controller i have written post :create action
When i run my spec i get an error as
“undefined method `post’ for
#Spec::Rails::Example::RailsExampleGroup::Subclass_1::Subclass_1:0xb693fb3c

Strangely my models are working fine.My rails version is 2.3.5 and rspec
version is 1.1.12
I tried in some other project,in that i am getting error as “Undefined
method controller for nil class”
Earlier it was working fine,but dont know what is the problem.
Please suggest.

I created a fresh application and tried to write simple user signup
controller.
But when i tried to run then it is showing the same error as undefined
method “post”
Please suggest

Take a look at these two pages:

http://rubygems.org/gems/rspec-rails/versions
http://rubygems.org/gems/rails/versions

rspec-rails-1.1.12 was released in January of 2009
rails-2.3.5 was released in November of 2009

You’ve got to use a version of rspec-rails that was released after
the version of rails you’re working with.

Cheers,
David

As per the list there are 3 versions of rspec released in Jan 2010 i.e.
1.3.0,1.3.1 and 1.3.2
Also there are various versions starting from 2.
So from all above version which one is a stable one so that i can
install it.

Why would you want anything but the latest? I’d go with that: 1.3.2.

Hi David,
I updated the rspec-rails with 1.3.2 and it update rspec with 1.3.0
Also i read the doc which stated that spec server is no longer
used.Instead they are using spork.
Since when i try to run with spec command it gives me above error
Now when i run with “spec --drb” then that spec is properly executed.
Also i want to know that when i run “spork” command from the project
root then it says “Spork is ready and listening on 8989!” but when i try
to run this port in browser then nothing is displayed.
Can you please tell me the difference between running spork command and
running spec locally using spec -drb

Hello,
I am having some problem with the controllers after i updated my specs.
Following are the details:
I am trying to call create action as
post :create :user => {:name => “abc”, :login => “abcd”, :phone =>
11111}
After this i am searching this for confirmation i.e.
user = User.find_by_name(“abc”)
user.name.should == “abc”
Now when i run this i am getting an error as
You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!The error occurred while
evaluating nil.title
Similarly for update.I am getting that particular user from the
fixtures and just updating the name and searching as above.But i am
getting same error

I am using fixtures as fixtures :users
So my guess is whatever params i am passing it may be getting updated
but again fixtures are getting uploaded.
Please suggest
