Rails 3.1: Test engine with Cucumber & test/dummy app

Run from the root of the engine project:

rails generate cucumber:install --capybara

Edit features/support/env.rb and add to the top:

ENV["RAILS_ENV"] ||= "test"
require File.expand_path("../../../test/dummy/config/environment.rb",  __FILE__)
ENV["RAILS_ROOT"] ||= File.dirname(__FILE__) + "../../../test/dummy"

Now from the root of the engine project:
