Database Cleaner
RSpec.configure do |config|
config.before(:suite) do
DatabaseCleaner.clean_with(:truncation)
end
config.before(:each) do
DatabaseCleaner.strategy = :transaction
end
config.before(:each, js: true) do
DatabaseCleaner.strategy = :truncation
end
config.before(:each) do
DatabaseCleaner.start
end
config.after(:each) do
DatabaseCleaner.clean
end
end

Where in your project do you typically put this file and from where is it required (test_helper.rb)?

@jamesladd: spec/support/database_cleaner.rb

This strategy is randomly deleting entries from my database in the middle of some of my tests for no apparent reason using Capybara-Webkit for tests with javascript enabled. Wish I could give more insight but it seems to be extremely random. Database is MYSQL.

@gregblass we are encountering the exact same problem. Did you find a solution?
