  1. Create a model Post with the attribute "title"
  2. Register the Post model with Active Admin
  3. View the Post model in the UI
  4. Add "validates_presence_of :title" to Post model
  5. Create a new post without a title
  6. New Post instance will be created without validating the title


It should use the latest reloaded version of the Post class

@gregbell gregbell ActiveAdmin::Resource looks up classes at runtime using their name
To deal with the reloading issues in #870, we now store reference to the
resource class as a string and constantize it each time we need it.

Also added a new cucumber profile called "class-reloading" which does
not cache classes. Since Active Admin should always work as expected in
development with Rails reloading, we should continue to grow scenarios
that include the '@requires-reloading' tag.
