Topic: Fixtures with No Underlying DB
I know this should be simple, but I have a bunch of forms that simply don't store data but rather email their contents to the appropriate recipients. The forms dupe AR into doing validations, but when I get to testing (I know it should be first), I can't quite get things rigged right because all I want to do is load data from a fixture to toss good and broken info at the model.
Rails tests try to load fixtures into a database table, but as I've explained, in my case there isn't one. Any thoughts about how best to test things like this?
