Dear all, I am setting some constants in an initializer, which are used in validations in my models. When I run RAILS_ENV=test rake gems:install I get missing constant errors for these, but not when I run RAILS_ENV=development rake gems:install It only happens for the gems:install task in test. Everything else (e.g. rake test) works as expected. What could be the problem? Thanks for your help Tobi

The problem you ran into was the same one as this thread: http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-talk/br... and both are caused by load_application_classes trying to load all your models at startup. That routine does nothing when config.cache_classes is false (the default in development mode, but not in test). As a quick workaround, try setting config.cache_classes to false in environments/test.rb to get the gems installed. --Matt J.
