Error in link_locator under JRuby

Reported by lvenegas (at gmail) | March 2nd, 2009 @ 01:38 AM

Under JRuby (maybe under MRI also??) when running a cucumber feature that makes use of the click_link method an error is thrown as follows:

And I follow 'Forgot your Member Id or password?' You have a nil object when you didn't expect it! The error occurred while evaluating nil.gsub (NoMethodError) (eval):2:in click_link' features/step_definitions/webrat_steps.rb:10 features/plain/member_login.feature:97:inAnd I follow 'Forgot your Member Id or password?''

I tracked down the error to the file lib/webrat/core/locators/link_locator.rb

The method causing the issue is:

def replace_nbsp_ref(str) str.gsub(' ',' ').gsub(' ', ' ') end

Adding an if statement to check for nil fixes it.

def replace_nbsp_ref(str) str.gsub(' ',' ').gsub(' ', ' ') if str end
