I hope someone can help me with this one. I have upgraded a simple
app from rails 2.3 to 4.1.6 and got the app going with little
difficulty. However when I run the tests using rake test, for every
test I get
NameError: uninitialized constant
I have a simple 4.1.6 app with tests that work ok and can't see any
obvious difference in the test setup. test_helper.rb is identical and
the settings in environment/test.rb are the same.
Google has failed me. Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
Why is it that after spending hours looking at a problem, ten minutes
after posting a request for help one finds the answer oneself?
The problem was that in one of the fixtures I was using
<%= Fixtures.identify(:...) %>
this has to be changed to
<%= ActiveRecord::FixtureSet.identify(:...) %>
0 out of 10 to rails for a really helpful error message. Problem
solved however, sorry for the noise. Perhaps this will be useful to
someone else if they get that error. I am still surprised google did
not find any reports of others with the same issue.
