[rspec-users] How to stub ApplicationController method in request spec

Hey there,

I am needing to stub a 'current_user' method in an Rspec/capybara
request spec. The method is defined in ApplicationController and is
using helper_method. The method should simply return a user id.

Alternatively, I could fix my problem by setting 'session[:user_id]'
in the spec (which is what 'current_user' returns)... but that doesn't
seem to work either.

Are either of these possible? Thanks!!!
