Given that you have
user has_many :articles
You want to use current_user.articles (or
In the spec, you want to make sure that the articles are scoped
through the correct user:
@user = mock_model(User)
User.stub!(:find).and_return(@user) # to make sure current_user is
the mock model
@articles = [mock_model(Article)]
it "should find articles for the current user" do
It is then the responsibility of the articles association to scope the
results. In the controller specs you just trust that it works.
