Noob to rails TDD - looking for just one complete and simple example.

I am a noob
to TDD, and I am looking for just one complete and simple example, that uses
FactoryGirl, with rspec, on rails, with a ActiveRecord::Base model.

If anyone
can help me I will be eternally in your dept.

For example:

I have a
page that displays a list of file names based on category.

Test:

If the
category is good the list of names (@list_of_names) should not be nil

Model (app/models/doclist.rb)

class Doclist < ActiveRecord::Base

self.table_name = ‘mydbo.dbo.doclist’

self.primary_key = ‘id’

attr_accessible :id, :name, :catname, :catid

end

Call from
the controller (app/controllers/general_controller.rb)

@list_of_names =
Howto.where(“catid=10”)

What code
would I put in these files?:

spec/factories.rb

spec/models/Doclist_spec.rb

app/controllers/general_controller.rb

app/models/doclist.rb

Am I missing something?

You might find something here http://railsapps.github.io

@trekr67 Thank You for the feedback. This site will be useful, but unfortunately doesn’t address this specific request. Thank you.

If you work right through the tutorial at railstutorial.org (which is
free to use online) that should get you started with rspec and
factorygirl.
