Dear all,

I am currently confused with defining model in Rails that has two
has_many relationship.

I have a model that is called Category, and this model will be used by
two model which is Product and Blog.

Would this definition make sense in rails ?

  has_many :product
  has_many :blog

  belongs_to :category

  belongs_to :category

Or is there a better way to do it in Rails?

Thanks for the hint.

Not by might nor by power, but by His Spirit.

has_many indicates a plural ie it should be has_many :products.
Other than that from a pure rails point of view it makes sense but I
can't tell if what that expresses corresponds to what you want.
