Infinite redirects should be detected and should raise an error

Reported by Daniel Lucraft | January 12th, 2009 @ 06:23 AM

Due to bug http://webrat.lighthouseapp.com/..., our Rails application was generating an infinite redirect, which caused Webrat to hang. Webrat should detect this and raise an error.

The commits http://github.com/songkick/webra... http://github.com/songkick/webra...

fix this. (Sorry there's two!)

    • Tag changed from featurerequest, patch, request, session to featurerequest, patch, request, session, verify

    1) Could you add a spec that exercises this? 2) Could you make the INFINITE_REDIRECT_CUT into a configuration option on config.rb with a default to 10 (and an associated test)? 3) What made you pick 10? Some article or just a guess / feeling?

    Hey Daniel,

    I added a couple specs, did a small refactoring and merged this in. Thanks for the patch!
