Simulating Cookies In RoR Functional Tests

Free Resource
Okay, my first try didn't work.  This seems to though:

@request.cookies['key'] = CGI::Cookie.new( 
  'name'   => 'key',
  'value'   => my_value,
  'expires' => 14.days.from_now,
  'path'    => '/',
  'domain'  => 'example.com'

When you're simulating a cookie, you have to go all the way.  It expects it as a CGI::Cookie, set by a hash with strings for keys.
