Getting undefined method set_cookie for nil:NilClass when running rspec

Reported by Amiruddin Nagri | June 7th, 2010 @ 02:31 AM

I am having a very simple test case for authlogic where it assigns the current user record to an instance variable inside a controller. When I wrote a spec for this functionality it started throwing the below error :

NoMethodError in 'UsersController edit should assign current user for edit'

undefined method set_cookie' for nil:NilClass



This is the additional stack trace when running with gems unpack

vendor/gems/authlogic-2.1.5/lib/authlogic/session/cookies.rb:117:in save_cookie'

vendor/gems/authlogic-2.1.5/lib/authlogic/session/callbacks.rb:83:in after_save'

vendor/gems/authlogic-2.1.5/lib/authlogic/session/existence.rb:71:in save'

vendor/gems/authlogic-2.1.5/lib/authlogic/session/existence.rb:86:in save!'

I debugged the spec, and it went through setting the controller for the current spec in Thread.current[:authlogic_controller] but when it was accessed again, it returns nil.

I have attached the git format-patch for the changes that needs to be done on a new rails application to reporduce the defect.

I am using Rails 2.3.5 with sqlite3 on Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit.
