Hi, I have a model with three attributes that could be a fixed set of different values. Each attribute does not have sufficient entity to be a class (in my opinion) and I prefer to not to create classes in order to store them. For example, one attribute can be only three strings: phone, email or fax. The second, two strings: building or garage. The correct way of doing this is restricting to this values in the model? Is there something I can/have to do in the migration? I'm thinking about a validation of each field in the model and a selection-option field in the forms. Is this the best pattern in order to implement this? Would you prefer to create models for each of this attributes? Hope I explained myself properly. Thanks.
