Unit test problem,

You're probably running into a naming issue. Models are expected to be the singular name and the tables will be plural as will the fixture files. You can see them all with the Pluralizer http://nubyonrails.com/tools/pluralize

But here's a simple listing:

test/fixtures/feeds.yml
app/model/feed.rb
   class Feed < ActiveRecord::Base
     in a database tables named "feeds"

It also expects to convert between CamelCase and under_scored so if your model is AggregationFeedMap, the file defining it should be app/models/aggregation_feed_map.rb and the table name should be aggregation_feed_maps and the fixture found in test/fixtures/aggregation_feed_maps.yml

Does this help you figure out your issues? It all becomes quite natural after a short while, but there are still times where you'll have a model name that the Inflector doesn't get the pluralization right and you either have to adjust or define an extra rule for the word you want to use.

Further, this command line...

  script/generate model aggregation_feed_map

...should have set everything up correctly for you. Where'd these fixtures come from?

In my case I have a model named LppBase. Pluralize becomes
lpp_bases. But if you singularize it back, it became lpp_basis. So,
I had to add an entry in the inflections file.

FYI: I debugged this by getting in to script/console and then
executing: "lpp_bases".pluralize.singularize

All your basis are belong to Rails.
