Hey Guys,

I'm trying to mock the Rails Logger for the following code:

    rescue TimeoutError => error
      $logger.error("#{self.name} Timeout for #{path}: #{error}") and return
    rescue SocketError => error
      $logger.error("#{self.name} SocketError for #{path}: #{error}") and
    rescue StandardError => error
      $logger.error("#{self.name} Error for #{path}: #{error}") and return

my failed attempt to spec:

   logger = mock_model(Logger)

Do you know of any solution for mocking this?

Also, do you think the Rails Logger is worth mocking?

Thanks very much in Advance,
