Hi There, "Test driven development in Rails using fixtures and rake". Can anyone give me suggestion that how I can test the Ruby and Rails application through Fixtures and Rake? I am desperately waiting for your meaningful response. Thanks in Advance, Mayank

But I'll answer this one. Firstly, this is not the Rails mailing list. This is the Ruby language mailing list. Asking about Rails on a Ruby list is rather like asking about Unix system administration on a C programming list. Secondly, a mailing list is generally not a place to ask "please tell me about X". The hidden subtext of your question is: "because I couldn't be bothered to google or to read the documentation, and actually I don't have much of a clue about what I'm trying to *do*, because if I did, I would be describing what I tried and what problems I came across when I tried" This is a very friendly and accommodating mailing list, but I'm afraid your post isn't likely to get a positive response. You can get advice on how to get good responses from mailing lists at http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#intro However, I will give you a positive response now: there is excellent documentation on test fixtures and unit testing in Rails in the book "Agile Web Development with Rails". You can buy this as an instant-download PDF from http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/ for just $23.50. It's full of examples and it will almost certainly give you all the hand-holding you need with all aspects of Rails. If not, then you can ask specific questions on the Rails google group about what particular thing you don't understand, and I'm sure someone will help you. Regards, Brian.
