Application classes should not be preloaded for testing

Reported by Pratik | January 29th, 2009 @ 09:22 PM | in 3.x

Running single test file is much faster with eager loading turned off.

    I actually like that this happens, it caught a few errors in our app caused by old code lying around in lib. Would've sucked to have this show up in production only

    • Milestone set to 2.x

    No need for 2.3 milestone. Current work around is to set config.eager_load_paths to []

    But preloading shouldn't rely on cache_classes in any case even though the default behaviour is to preload in test/prod mode.
