When I started developing my application I grouped my controllers in the
followin g fashion: User::ControllerName.

Now I've realized that the 'User' module is a misnomer for my current
controllers and I need to use the User module for something else, so I
decided to change the controllers in the 'User' module to 'Data'. I've
changed the directory structure and updated all Controllers to reflect
this change, but it doesn't want to work.. Here is the structure as it
looks now:

-controllers

--data
---xxx_controller.rb
---....

-helpers
--data
---xxx_helper.rb

-models (No changes were made)
--xxx.rb

-views
--data
---controllername...

-------------------------
Inside the controller files, I've updated "class User::Controllername"
to "class  Data::Controllername". I've changed all references to 'User'
in my templates, but it doesnt want to work! When I try to open
http://localhost:3000/data/controllername I get:

Routing Error

Recognition failed for "/data/controllername"


My development log shows:
f:/programming/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/actionpack-1.12.1/lib/action_controller/routing.rb:249:
warning: toplevel constant Guide referenced by Data::Guide

/data/guide/ HTTP/1.1" 404 600
- -> /data/guide/

Any suggestions? Am i missing anything obvious here?

Thanks in advance.

Right, so after double/triple checking every file I decided to try
something:

ruby script/generate controller Data::Test

After which I got:

  The name 'data' is reserved by Ruby on Rails.
  Please choose an alternative and run this generator again.

Oops! I renamed my "Data" module to "Doc" and everything is back to
normal.

Oi!
