Description ehartmann 2009-10-04 10:49:37 UTC

With a rails application using the gem test-unit 2.0, Netbeans always load the test-unit from ruby installation (old one).
I'm using Ruby 1.8.7 with test-unit 2.0.3.

A quick test is to use the assert_true method which does not exist in the "old" library. While Rake succeed in testing
the application, the test fails under Netbeans with an undefined method error.

I suspect that the "error" is in ruby code (but I'm really not sure): I found a quick work-around by modifying
nb_test_mediator.rb, here is the small modification :

+require 'rubygems'
+  gem 'test-unit'
+  require 'test/unit/version'
+  puts "Test-unit version : #{Test::Unit::VERSION} loaded"
+rescue Gem::LoadError => e
+  puts 'Test-unit gem not found, falling back to default test-unit'
 require 'test/unit'
 require 'test/unit/testcase'
 require 'test/unit/testsuite'
 require 'test/unit/ui/testrunnermediator'
 require 'getoptlong'
-require 'rubygems'
 require 'rake'
 require File.join(File.expand_path(File.dirname(__FILE__)), "nb_suite_runner")

Thanks a lot for the patch, I think that is the correct fix for this. I'll give it a try and integrate to trunk then.
