Hi *,
I need to test cookie creation with rspec and using Rack::Test, but for
some reason I'm not able to pair the real app that creates a cookie with
the rspec tests.
The spec is like this:

  it "should authenticate using cookies" do
    user = Factory.create :user
    remember_token = Charon.make_remember_token
    set_cookie "warden=#{ remember_token }"
    user.update :remember_token => remember_token
    post '/authenticate'
    last_request.env[ 'warden' ].should be_authenticated
  end

Inside the main app I set the cookie like:

  if !request.cookies[ 'warden' ]
    response.set_cookie( 'warden', :value => env[ 'warden'
].user.remember_token )
  end

I can clearly see it works when testing manually. For some reasons, the
rspec cookie is different than the one set by the app.

Is someone trying something similar and can share some code ? I think
that the problem is in Rack::Test but I'm not sure and I'm not able
prove it.

What versions of rails, rspec, rspec-rails, ruby, etc?

Where does this spec live?

It's sinatra 1.0, not rails.
ruby 1.8.7 (2010-01-10 patchlevel 249)
rspec (1.3.0)
rack-test (0.5.3)
rack (1.1.0)

In which case this is probably not an rspec problem. Where is the
set_cookie method defined in this example (from your earlier post in
this thread)?

 it "should authenticate using cookies" do
   user = Factory.create :user
   remember_token = Charon.make_remember_token
   set_cookie "warden=#{ remember_token }"
   user.update :remember_token => remember_token
   post '/authenticate'
   last_request.env[ 'warden' ].should be_authenticated
 end

Also, can you try the same example using test/unit? Do you get the same
result?

Try:

post 'whatever', {}, {'rack.session' => {:something=>'value'}}

To put things through the session with rack test/sinatra.

Hmm, hold up, that isn't what you asked for :)

You have to remember that the default Rack::Test::CookieJar#[] only
returns
cookies that exactly match the domain and path of the current request so
be
sure to check there first.

I think this is more of a Sinatra issue, and not an rspec issue.  But,
since I'm a Sinatra fan, I thought I'd weigh in, since I just went
through this and it was harder then I would've expected.

If you want to pass session values in tests, you'll have to disable
sessions in your sinatra app.  I've got a blog post at
http://benprew.posterous.com/ with the details.

Also, I had to do this in one of my apps recently, take a look at the
Rakefile, picklespears.com and test/test_player.rb at
