IntegrationTest of rails app does not see rack middleware updates

Reported by apmonkey | September 13th, 2010 @ 09:56 PM

I am currently trying to integration test a rails 2.3.8 app that uses the open_id_authentication plugin, which in turn uses the rack-openid middleware to detect a 401 unauthorized response and turn it into a redirect to the openid provider for validation.

In the integration test, I would like to use an assert_response 303 for the openid redirect, but currently it fails as the assert_response sees the 401 response of the rails app, rather than the modified 303 response from the rack middleware.

After changing to drop through to the else clause, the integration test works again. However, I don't have enough knowledge of rails to know what the correct fix is, or indeed if I am doing something wrong and this is the intended way of working.

However, the fact that there are a couple of inconsistencies with some parts of the testing framework seeing the rack responses and some the rails responses, I suspect this is an error in rails and thus I would like to raise the issue here for someone more knowledgeable to have a look

Thank you
