Thanks a lot guys, this is great help, it's really appreciated, it
makes a lot more sense now.
I somehow felt that I'm not entirely on the right path when I'm doing
controller testing, and your replies and examples given here shed
some light on it.
David, I like your alternative better, since it has more structure.
Also, I'd like to ask one more question, which popped into my mind
after reviewing these examples, but it's not relating strictly into
the previous topic.
Is there some way, to say something like:
it "should" do
post :any_action, params
I'm using some before filters in my controllers to DRY up my code,
for example: retrieve a specific record, if params[:id] is set. This
is very useful for automatic scoping and assigning instance vars in
some controllers, which are relate to nested resources (eg.
map.resources :foo, has_many => [:bar])
The aim of this would be to DRY up the tests a little bit, since each
action always retrieves a specific set of records, and I could spec
it out in the shared model for all possible actions at once, or I am
missing something here either? :)
Thanks again for the great examples, regards:
