JRuby and tests

Using JRuby / ActiveRecord-JDBC / PostgreSQL 8.1 I get

jruby --command rake test
(in /Users/stevel/Publisher)
rake aborted!
Task not supported by 'jdbc'

Is it really the case that testing is not yet supported by
ActiveRecord-JDBC or am I missing something obvious?

Actually, yeah, what you are seeing is the artifact of the big hack
that is db:test:clone_structure.

If you are using migrations, you can use them to create your test
database instead, and that will likely work much better with AR-JDBC.
Put the following snippet in a "jdbc.rake" file in your lib/tasks
directory and away you go. Let me know if this works for you.
