I'm writing an acts_as_something gem for ActiveRecord. I want to test it only on the ActiveRecord part of the framework. Therefore I'm not loading the entire rails framework, only ActiveRecord. That's all fine but I need to wrap each test in a transaction which gets rolled back in the teardown for each test. ActiveSupport is supposed to do this if you set the undocumented use_transactional_fixtures = true except that doesn't appear to be working in 2.3.3 and in any case I don't want to load ActiveSupport. Really I want to use Test::Unit along with Shoulda. I can get the transaction to start in Test::Unit::TestCase setup, but how can I get it to rollback in teardown? There's no rollback method to complement ActiveRecord::Base.transaction Comments please John S.
