[rspec-users] Transactional fixtures for Gem (not Rails) development

Hello.

Is it possible to also use the transactional examples feature for gem
(not Rails) development. It seems that one has to require "rspec-
rails", but I still can't get it to work.

I added this to my spec_helper.rb:
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.use_transactional_fixtures = true
end

And also required:
require 'rubygems'
require 'bundler'
require 'logger'
require 'active_record'
require 'rails'
require 'rspec-rails'
require 'active_support'

But I get that error when running a test:
undefined method `use_transactional_fixtures=' for
#<RSpec::Core::Configuration:0xb706d0bc> (NoMethodError)
although I required rspec-rails and rails as mentioned above

Is it simply not possible to use transactional examples for gem
development?

Best regards,
Kai
