HttpAuthentication::Basic gives wrong information on example on how to authenticate

Reported by eydaimon | July 30th, 2010 @ 05:51 AM

http://api.rails.info/classes/ActionController/HttpAuthentication/B...

 In your integration tests, you can do something like this:
   def test_access_granted_from_xml
     get(
       "/notes/1.xml", nil,
       :authorization => ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic.encode_credentials(users(:dhh).name, users(:dhh).password)
     )

     assert_equal 200, status
   end

This doesn't work. It should read:

 get(
  "/notes/1.xml", nil,
  'HTTP_AUTHORIZATION' => ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic.encode_credentials(users(:dhh).name, users(:dhh).password)
 )
