I am not able to get the unit test “test_product_is_not_valid_without_a_unique_title(ProductTest)” to pass

I copied the products.yml and product_test.rb from this site so it should be correct

Test db does have the correct fixtures.


C:\Sites\depot\db>sqlite3 test.sqlite3 “select * from products”; 207281424|Programming Ruby 1.9|Ruby is the fastest growing and most exciting dyn amic language out there.

But I get the following error

If only there was a way to step through the test to see what is going on.

doh… unique validation was missing! validates :title, uniqueness: true

Problem solved… The thread delete button does not work!.

Leave this up. I wasted hours looking for the solution to the same problem.
As per my usual issue, I was reading through the book too fast and missed a line! Slow and steady :)

so it should be

validates :title, :uniqueness => true

That fixed my problem!
