[rspec-users] How to unit test code that connects to the external resources?

By external resources, I mean, the code start a http connection and GET xmls
from the url specified. I will definitely not rely my unit test on an
external url or anything like that. But how do I unit test the method? I
mean, I can basically mock the Net::HTTP, but then the test will pretty much
be like the method itself, except all the calls will be replaced by stub! or
I made this method as simple as possible. There is no *if* statements or
loop in the method, should I just NOT test this one?
Thanks for any ideas
