7.6. More on Testing

The most important link on the topic testing is surely the URL http://guides.rubyonrails.org/testing.html. There you will also find several good examples on this topic. Otherwise, Railscasts (http://railscasts.com/episodes?utf8=%E2%9C%93&search=test) offers a few good screencasts on this topic.
No other topic is the subject of much discussion in the Rails community as the topic testing. There are very many alternative test tools. One very popular one is RSpec (see http://rspec.info/). I am deliberately not going to discuss these alternatives here, because this book is mainly about helping you understand Rails, not the thousands of extra tools with which you can build your personal Rails development environment.

Updates about this book will be published on my Twitter feed.
