Unit tests executed for every page load?


#1

After I installed the very sweet file_column plugin I get strange output
on my html pages. At the very end I always get something like this:

"Loaded suite dispatch.cgi Started Finished in 0.000218 seconds. 0
tests, 0 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors "

Seems like there is executed a non existent test suite for every page
load. Can anybody help me find the lines that force this behaviour ?

Thanks

You only have to require ‘test/unit’ for that to happen, not actually
define
any test suites. If you can’t figure out where/why it is being required,
set
Test::Unit.run = true and it won’t run automatically like you are
seeing.

Thanks Jonathan!

To be more specific, I included this line in config/environment.rb
(after the "Include your application configuration below comment):
Test::Unit.run = true

I had the same issue.

If you modify the init.rb that came with the plugin (file_column) to
comment out the line "require ‘test_case’, it fixes the problem.

The init.rb would then look like this:

plugin init file for rails

this file will be picked up by rails automatically and

add the file_column extensions to rails

require ‘file_column’
require ‘file_compat’
require ‘file_column_helper’
require ‘validations’
#require ‘test_case’

ActiveRecord::Base.send(:include, FileColumn)
ActionView::Base.send(:include, FileColumnHelper)
ActiveRecord::Base.send(:include, FileColumn::Validations)
