Hello all! I would like to get an admin interface for my shopping cart app up and running using rails. The admin interface will be used for Customers, Products, Catggories, ect management. My db schema reflects the above mention tables names. The question I have is could I use the scaffold feature this way: (eg)---ruby script/generate scaffold Products Customers Categories Admin?

Hi, Patrick, you should make sure that your database scheme uses the other conventions that rails assumes. If it does not do a search on the wiki for legacy schema and build your models upon that. The main other convention that your legacy schema often won't fit is the name of the foreign keys which should be in your case customer_id, product_id and category_id. But you could of course use scaffolding to make up some stumps and then define your associations as told in the wiki page regarding legacy schemas. Just give scaffolding a try and see if it gives you errors... Best Regards Jan P.
