Calling POST via newRequest and makeRequest fails

Reported by Cyril | June 6th, 2011 @ 04:02 PM

Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.

Framework version: 1.2.1
Platform you're using: FEdora 15 Beta 64b

Reproduction steps: See code below

Details:

    Request r = newRequest();
    r.headers.put("x-requested-with", new Header("x-requested-with", "XMLHttpRequest"));
    r.method = "POST";
    r.url = "/login";
    r.params.put("email", "user@example.com");
    r.params.put("password", "password");

    Response response = makeRequest(r);
    assertIsOk(response);
    assertContentType("application/json", response);
    assertCharset("utf-8", response);
    assertContentMatch("\"success\":true", response);

This tests results in a failure with a RuntimeException thrown : play.mvc.results.NotFound: POST /

What is odd is that it should be POST /login, NOT POST /.

    This is not a bug.

    Look at the following method in FunctionalTest and see how the Request is created:

    public static Response GET(Request request, Object url)
    

    In your case you should do this:

    r.url = "/login";
    r.path = "/login";
    

    or:

    r.url = "/login?a=1";
    r.path = "/login";
    

    Or you could do it like this:

    Request r = newRequest();
    r.headers.put("x-requested-with", new Header("x-requested-with", "XMLHttpRequest"));
    r.params.put("email", "user@example.com");
    r.params.put("password", "password");
    
    Response response = POST(r, "/login");
