2 failures in Action Pack in master on 1.9.2-head

Reported by Rohit Arondekar | June 25th, 2010 @ 04:24 AM | in 3.x

Running the Action Pack test suite on 1.9.2-head gives 1 failure and 1 error:

  1) Failure:
test_uses_the_output_buffer_for_assert_select(ActionView::AssertionsTest) [test/template/test_case_test.rb:229]:
Expected at least 1 element matching "form", found 0.

  2) Error:
NameError: uninitialized constant Test::Unit::AssertionFailedError

In first failing test. Replacing the following:

  render(:partial => 'test/from_helper')


  puts render(:partial => 'test/from_helper')

gives the following (when running the tests):


<form action="/foo" method="post"><ul><li>foo</li></ul></form>

    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    The first failing test is a strange one. I tried recreating what the test is trying to do in a sample app.

    I created a Post resource and then the following.

    • app/helpers/posts_helper.rb
    module PostsHelper
      def render_from_helper
        form_tag('/foo') do
          safe_concat render(:text => '<ul><li>foo</li></ul>')
    • app/views/posts/index.html.erb
    <%= render :partial => 'test/from_helper' %>
    • app/views/test/_from_helper.html.erb
    <%= render_from_helper %>
    • OUTPUT of localhost:3000/posts
    <form action="/foo" method="post"><div style="margin:0;padding:0;display:inline"><input name="authenticity_token" type="hidden" value="/IYCV0CzIdNbd6Z03ZnpN2wbgHwGkB4mtlPtr0j3rpU=" /></div><ul><li>foo</li></ul></form>

    If this is what the test is trying to do then it works perfectly on 1.9.2 (head and preview3). However the render :partial in the test just doesn't render the form(renders the UL list inside it) on 1.9.2. Works fine on 1.8.7.

    I tried following the render :partial call, reached upto actionpack/lib/action_view/render/partials.rb but I couldn't find any difference between the path it took on 1.8.7 and 1.9.2 except that it doesn't render the form on 1.9.2 :(

    Note that a patch for the error has been provided in #4987 and will most likely be applied.

    This leaves the one failing test.
