I have a simple model as shown below:
# == Schema Information
# Schema version: 20101101014544
#
# Table name: base_folders
#
#  id         :integer         not null, primary key
#  name       :string(255)
#  created_at :datetime
#  updated_at :datetime
#

class BaseFolder < ActiveRecord::Base
  attr_accessible :name
  validates_presence_of :name, :message => "^You must specify a base
folder name."
end

And the spec: spec/models/base_folder.rb which contains

require 'spec_helper'

describe BaseFoler do

  describe "failure" do
    it "Base folder cannot be saved without a name" do
      base_folder = Factory.build(:base_folder, :name => '')
      base_folder.should_not be_valid
    end
  end

  describe "success" do
    it "should be valid with a name attribute" do
      course = Factory(:course)
      base_folder = Factory(:base_folder)
      base_folder.should be_valid
    end
  end

end

When I execute:

rspec spec/models/base_folder_spec.rb, I get the following stack
trace:

What am I missing?
