my gem file looks like

source 'http://rubygems.org'
gem 'rails', '3.1.0.rc6'
gem 'sqlite3'
gem 'devise'
gem 'will_paginate'
gem 'therubyracer'
group :assets do
  gem 'sass-rails', "  ~> 3.1.0.rc"

  gem 'uglifier'
end
gem 'jquery-rails'

  gem 'turn', :require => false

end

group :development do

end

my factories.rb

Factory.define :user do |user|
  user.username              "ccc"
  user.email                 "[email protected]"
  user.password              "foobar"
  user.password_confirmation "foobar"
end

Factory.define :user_hero do |hero|
  hero.supername        "superman"
  hero.association :user
end

my hero_controller_spec looks like this

require 'spec_helper'

describe HerosController do
  include Devise::TestHelpers
  render_views

  before(:each) do
    @user       = Factory(:user)
    # @request.env["devise.mapping"] = :user
    # @user = Factory.create(:user)
    sign_in @user
    @hero_attr   = {
      :supername        => "superman",
    }
  end

  it "should create a new instance with valid attributes" do
    @user.heros.create!(@hero_attr)
  end

end

My autotest or guard shows up the following message
