Is anyone else using shoulda, factory_girl and webrat for Rails integration tests?
I did a quick search and found Daniel Wellman using it in integration tests minus shoulda and factory_girl. I really like adding shoulda to get the contexts and factory_girl is a great replacement for fixtures. When combined with webrat it really makes for some easy to read integration tests. By the way, I'm already using shoulda and factory_girl for my unit and functional tests.
Here is an example I whipped up last night. It's nothing fancy. I'll probably make some modifications in the future, but so far I'm happy with it. I'm loading webrat in my test_helper.

require '../test_helper' class AdminLoginTest < ActionController::IntegrationTest context 'An employee' do setup do @employee = Factory(:employee) end should 'be able to login with a valid username and password' do visit '/admin' assert https? assert_equal '/admin/sessions/new', path fills_in 'Email', :with => @employee.user.email fills_in 'Password', :with => @employee.user.password clicks_button 'Log In' assert_equal @employee.user.id, session[:user_id] end should 'be denied access with an invalid username or password' do visit '/admin' assert https? assert_equal '/admin/sessions/new', path fills_in 'Email', :with => @employee.user.email fills_in 'Password', :with => 'wrongpassord' clicks_button 'Log In' assert_nil session[:user_id] end end end
This is testing a simple login to the admin section of a project I'm working on. We're using restful_authentication. Each line of each test is essentially an assertion. If something doesn't respond with a success or a form field is missing, the test fails.
