undefined method `fixtures' problem


I posted a couple of days ago regarding a problem I had with restful
authentication test failing. So, I tried it again. I started a new
application, installed restful authentication, ran the tests and they
all passed. So, the problem is not with the plugin. I do have another
problem though and appreciate your help.

I use rails 2.3.2 with restful authentication and resource_controller
plugins. I created categories, products and pages using
scaffold_resource.... This creates tests for me. I haven't changed
anything in the tests just yet. However, when running 'rake', all the
unit tests pass but the functional tests do not. I get an error that
says (among other things):

./test/functional/categories_controller_test.rb:8: undefined method
`fixtures' for CategoriesControllerTest:Class (NoMethodError)
from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.3.2/lib/
rake aborted!
Command failed with status (1): [/usr/local/bin/ruby -I"/...]

Looks like scafold_resource has created tests with the old boiler
plate - the above can be replaced by

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../test_helper'
class CategoriesControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase

and you no longer need to have the setup method that creates @request,
@response, @controller.
(this assumes that you have fixtures :all in test_helper.rb which I
believe is the default)


class CategoriesControllerTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
class CategoriesControllerTest < ActionController::TestCase
ran my tests. Now I have some failures to fix :slight_smile:

Thanks Fred.
