Topic: Views testing in BDD

Hi! My first post on this forum smile

I'm new in BDD, i'm writing now my first app in BDD way. I'm using RSpec with Steak for acceptance tests ( https://github.com/cavalle/steak ).

I wrote first acceptance test for user signuping:

user clicks sign up link on homepage
fills all fields in sign up form
clicks submit button
checks for activation email

Should I test views here? Homepage to contain Sign up link with good href and new user form for contain all fields and good action= and method="post"?

Is views testing practiced in BDD at all? Or, are in BDD accteptance tests enough and there is no need for model/controller/view tests? Becouse if we test all the features, all behaviour which we want from our app in acceptance tests, what for would be other tests? For example, if we have scenario when user goes to homepage, clicks sign up and signs up, there is no need to even write 'should be success' for home controller and users controller, becouse we already test it in that scenario. Similar with models - if signing up and validating works well, there is no need for model tests.

What are you think about it? What are real-life practices of BDD?
