I am trying to get an overall perspective. So after watching the first two weeks of the TDD workshop, I looked at Ben Orenstein’s “Getting the TDD Ball Rolling”. His first test is to create a request spec… same thing as I saw in a Railscast that is about 2 years old. In the
TDD workshop OTOH, the first is to create an “integration” directory and manually create a spec. I saw some comment that capybara is no longer supported as of Capybara 2.0.0. So perhaps this is a change.
Can someone give me some perspective here? Are we no long using requests? Should we start with spec requests or integration tests? Also what about the usefulness of generated spec?
