Rspec + Shoulda + FactoryGirl = undefined method `reflect_on_association'

I have Rspec + Shoulda + FactoryGirl and I am receiving the following
error when attempting to call Shoulda’s have_many or belong_to
methods. All Shoulda methods used in the “validations” group work

Thanks in advance


require 'shoulda'


require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../spec_helper'

describe "A Project" do
  describe "associations" do

    subject { Factory(:project) }

    it { should have_many(:tasks) }
    it { should belong_to(:project_status) }

  describe "validations" do
    subject { Factory(:project) }

    it { should validate_presence_of(:name) }

    it { should validate_uniqueness_of(:name).case_insensitive }

    it { should allow_mass_assignment_of(:name) }

What’s active_matchers? I don’t think that’s part of rspec, shoulda,
or factory_girl.

Thank you so much. I have been staring at this for way too long and
missed the obvious. I had a redundant active_matchers plugin that was
conflicting with shoulda.
