> I realy like to use features spec but I have some questions about the

> 1. How should I group the features specs?
> ----------------------------------------------------------
>
> For the moment, I try to group by controllers. For example, I can have a
> file "users_spec.rb", "artists_spec.rb", etc... Maybe it's better to group
> by user story... What do you think?
>
>
>
> 2. What is a "very high level"?
> -------------------------------------------
>
> I try to keep my features specs at a very high level. I test only the
> interactions between the user and the application. I test only the "happy
> path". You can find one example of my tests here :
> https://github.com/GCorbel/lescollectionneursassocies/blob/master/spec/acceptances/artists_spec.rb
> .
>
> I do specs for controllers, mailers, models, etc. but is it good to also
> check if a new record is added or if a mail is send in a feature spec?
>
> I think it's not an implementation detail. The user want to have and email
> sended and a user created. If I check if a user is created, should I test
> if there is a new model or should I go to the index page and check if the
> user exist?
>
>
>
> 3. Is it possible to drop all technical details outside the scenario?
>
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
>
> In some scenario, I can have this :
>
>         create_home_page
>         sign_in
>         AdminUser.create!(email: 'admin at example.com', password:
> 'test1234')
>
> This is not related to what the client want to have. It's only
> implementation details. I know I can put it on a background but, if I have
> many scenarios, I should do one background per scenario. I think it's not
> very clean. I like to have a clean file and I don't want to use describe
> and contexts on a feature spec. What you think?
>
>
> So, what you think about all of this subjects. Your opinion will be very
> appreciated.
>
> Bye!
