Rack::Test and request / response objects

Rack::Test uses last_response and last_request objects instead of Rack’s typical request and response objects. This is probably normally fine, but when you are testing functionality that requires accessing the Rack’s normal objects, they aren’t there. I found (in the comments section of this post) that you can fix this by overriding them in your test_helper.rb:

module Test::Unit
  class TestCase
    include Rack::Test::Methods
    ...
    
    def request(*args)
      args.empty? ? last_request : rack_test_session.request(*args)
    end

    ...
  end
end
