Does anybody use Rspec with Oracle? I have RoR app + Oracle DB. I use
This would be better targeted at
http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/rspec-users. I'll answer this
one here, but please post further rspec questions to that list. You're
much more likely to get a response from people who have experienced
the same issues you have there.
I have installed Rspec plugin and generated spec for model Country.
If I use "@countries = Country.new" in my spec I get
"ArgumentError in 'Country should be valid'
block not supplied
That's odd. In release 0.9.4, kernel.rb has only 9 lines of code so
there should not be an error coming from line 12 if you are using that
version. Have you modified that file yourself?
"@countries = Country.find(:first)" works but "@countries =
Country.new" doesn't work.
I have found some modifications for Rspec 0.9.2 in files
but those modifications have not helped me.
What do you mean by "found some modifications"?
Also - 0.9.2 - is that a typo or are you using the 0.9.2 plugin with
the 0.9.4 gem? If so, that's a no-no. Please be sure to read
http://rspec.rubyforge.org/documentation/rails/install.html for more
This is my spec:
require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../spec_helper'
describe Country do
@countries = Country.new
# @countries = Country.find(:first)
it "should be valid" do
Does anybody know how I can use method "new" of model in my Rspec's
files with Oracle?
There's no reason this shouldn't just work if you've installed rspec
correctly and you put the specs where rspec wants them (the example
above should be in spec/models/country_spec.rb). I'd re-install rspec
and rspec_on_rails (per
You can also run the examples with the -b switch and get a full backtrace.
If this doesn't help, feel free to follow up on the rspec list
(prefered) or in this thread. If you think there is a bug, please
report it to rspec's tracker:
