Hi, I'm currently in the early stages of building a rails app that would greatly benefit from using Class-Table Inheritance instead of STI. I see there is a plugin to extend activerecord to handle this: http://www.agilewebdevelopment.com/plugins/inherits_from Unfortunately the URL to the plugin's repository is broken along with the home page link too (I have emailed author but not heard back as yet). I'm on a very tight deadline for this project. Does anyone have the plugin code installed in a project? Could anyone send it to me? Thanks, James.

If you're using PostgreSQL, you can try my class table inheritance plugin from svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/clti/plugins/class_table_inheritance It doesn't have inherits_from limitations - inherited column validation/error handling and find_by_ on inherited column work. The only inconvenience is that you must manually set_table_name for inheritance classes. It's still in alpha status because performance was not tested - unit tests are available though and all pass. -- Sava C.
