If it does not have to be online and free: http://www.pragprog.com/titles/achbd/the-rspec-book

Thanks Markus , but i really dont think so that i will able to buy that book…can you provide me with some other source.

The free online tutorial railstutorial.org includes rspec if I
remember correctly. Possibly not cucumber though. Did google
searches for rspec tutorial and cucumber tutorial not provide anything
useful?

Colin

there are few resources on google and i have gone through those resources but my concepts are still not clear…

Did railstutorial.org not get you started?

Colin

nope !!

So what exactly don’t you understand?

Fred.

like i want some kind of tutorial that explains these concepts right from the scratch because i consider myself just a naive user when it comes to ruby on rails and i dont have much time to completely gone through the rails concepts …

nope !!

What, you worked right through railstutorial.org (this should take a
few days) and it did not get you started with rspec?

Colin

I'm presently a little over halfway through the textbook on
railstutorial.org and it does indeed familiarize a person with rspec.
Cucumber is not covered, though.

A quick search for "tutorial cucumber" yielded this link:

https://github.com/aslakhellesoy/cucumber/wiki/Tutorials-and-Related-Blog-Posts

And searching for "railscast cucumber" yielded several relevant
videos. I've not viewed any of the railscasts but I hear GREAT
things. The two top links produced from this search are:
railscasts.com/episodes/155-beginning-with-cucumber and railscasts.com/
episodes/159-more-on-cucumber. I suspect they're a good place to
start.

Too bad Rails in Action isn’t quite out yet. Co-written by Yehuda Katz and Ryan Biggs, this book starts with Test::Unit before moving onto Rspec and Cucumber. The first several chapters are available online, I believe.

If you don’t understand the basic concepts of Rails trying to learn Rspec and Cucumber for testing on Rails will just confuse you more. Take the time to get the concepts of Rails down so you can get the maximum advantage from whatever tutorial or book you use to learn RSpec and Cucumber.

B.

Kind of as a side note, the subject of this thread is a bit
misleading. It leads a reader to think you're posting some tips for
people who need assistance with rspec or cucumber.

You may consider, in the future, considering a more accurate subject.
For instance, since you're seeking help, you may want to name your
subject/topic "I need help with rspec and cucumber" or "Please help me
understand rspec and cucumber."

That way you may attract the right, knowledgeable (helpful) people.

I visited this thread because I'm new to Rails and was hoping to learn
more about these two topics.

Cheers,

Dana

Pretty complete overview of the entire process...

Pretty complete overview of the entire process…

Or rails test prescriptions:
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/nrtest/rails-test-prescriptions

It’s more general (starts with test:unit and fixtures and includes shoulda and other stuff), but in some ways it’s a quicker “getting started” guide.

I have both and would recommend getting both.

Best Wishes,
