One thing’s for sure, it’s not obvious what’s going on when a test fails because of cookies. For that reason, I shied away from using cookies significantly.

Anyway, here’s a failure I was getting:

1   1) Failure:
2 test_create_session_with_right_username_and_password_and_remember_me(CreateSessionsControllerTest)
3     [test/functional/sessions_controller_test.rb:57:in `test_create_session_with_right_username_and_password_and_remember_me'
4      /home/francois/src/config/../vendor/plugins/mocha/lib/mocha/test_case_adapter.rb:19:in `run']:
5 No :auth_token cookie in the response
6 ---
7 auth_token:
8

8 – cookie value


Turns out the @response.cookies Hash is not indifferent. You really have to use a String to get to the content:

1 def test_cookie_set
2   assert_equal ["some value"], @response.cookies["auth_token"],
3     "this will succeed"
4   assert_equal ["some value"], @response.cookies[:auth_token],
5     "this will always fail"
6 end
