How do I test this code in RSpec?


Here is the method that called only via ajax in Ruby on Rails 3.2.2

def some_ajax_action @user = User.find_by_id(params[:id]) @user_list = User.find_all_by_parent_id(params[:id]) respond_to do |format| format.js end end

I wonder is it neccessary (or possible) to test it with RSpec? Any thoughts?


How about:

before do User.stub(:find_by_id) User.stub(:find_all_by_parent) end it "finds the user" do User.should_receive(:find_by_id).with("37") xhr <HTTP VERB>, :some_ajax_action, :id => "37" end it "finds the user list" do User.should_receive(:find_all_by_parent).with("37") xhr <HTTP VERB>, :some_ajax_action, :id => "37" end

Replace <HTTP VERB> by whatever is in your routes.rb for these ajax calls, e.g. if you have

get 'some_ajax_action'

then the first one would be xhr :get, :some_ajax_action, :id => "37".
