Hi. It’s quite difficult to search within one sub-section of the forum, so I apologize in case this question has been raised already.

Would you consider mentionning the other testing frameworks in current chapter 14, “Task T: Testing”? Obviously, I think about RSpec (+ Cucumber) (RSpec book’s in beta but is quite good, although it’s been redesigned), but there are some more worth mentionning.

The third edition shipped in March of 2009.

In the fourth edition, testing won’t be a separate chapter, but will be folded into the basic scenario, this part is nearly done. The plans are to also have a chapter on other components that, while not either a part of the core of Rails or even a default, are very much a part of the greater Rails ecosystem. This chapter hasn’t been written yet, but I expect to have sections on RSpec (+Cucumber), DataMapper, and JQuery, among others.

That’s even better than expected! I for one thought testing should have been nested within the book as a core part of the dev. process, therefore it’s a great piece of news to hear that. That stands true for the chapter on the Rails “ecosystem” as well.

Maybe a few words on the NoSQL trend/buzz/revolution/whatever? :)
