Running Selenium tests with a "no server" option

Reported by kfitzpatrick | April 29th, 2009 @ 01:53 PM | in 1.0

For most of my use cases, I'm not actually running a rails, merb, or sinatra application. So I need to be able to spin up Webrat where I can set "config.application_framework = :noserver" so it can run against any other server I may have running.

Perhaps :noserver isn't the right value name, but you get the idea.

    kfitzpatrick, Thanks for the patch. We need to discuss it a bit internally. Managing the number of "modes" and how they are tested is one of the big things we have been trying to do lately.

    gaffo, cool.

    I love the integration with the Ruby web framworks, but being able to drive Selenium with Webrat (plus some Cucumber syntax for steps) has been an incredible boon to our big Java project, Comcast.net. It's completely revolutionized my daily development process.

    Thanks to the whole Webrat team!

    I just saw this ticket again while cleaning things out in the lighthouse. We added an :external mode for selenium which doesn't start an app server. I'm marking this as resolved. Sorry for the wait.
