I meet a strange problem. I have a table name is application. So I have
to use Application as the model class name. But it reports error. If I
put the model class into my special module and require the file in
controller, it works. But I find that all predefined methods in Active
Record are no longer effective, such as validate and so on.

Can you please give me some idea on this problem? Thanks .

This list is for discussion of the development of engines plugin - it
sounds like your issue is to do with Rails in general, rather than the
plugin, and therefore you may get a better response (from a wider
audience) if you post this to the correct list.

That said, I can imagine that Rails won't like you having a model
called Application, since it would reside in a file called
application.rb, which clashes with the ApplicationController file. You
may simply have to choose a different name for your model...
