[rspec-users] find_all_by returning nil

The statement
products = find_all_by_category_id(category_id)
in the Product model is returning nil with rspec.
I am expecting it to to return value for the stub that I provided it
with. It does
not also work with fixtures.


Product model

 def self.find_all_meeting_some_criteria_for_category(category_id)
    products = find_all_by_category_id(category_id)
    products.each do |product|
           ....
    end
 end

Product spec

it "should find products given a category" do
   product = mock_model(Product, :id => 1, :category_id => 1)
   Product.stub(!find_all_by_category_id).with(anything()).and_return([product])
   Product.should_receive(:find_all_meeting_some_criteria_for_category).with(product.category_id)
end
