Adding record in database table

Hi,
I have a question that Is it possible to add record into the database
table without adding the model for that?

E.g. I have a table customers. And I haven’t created a model for that.
Can I add a record into that table bu doing “cust=Custome.new cust.save”

Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Tushar

You can’t do Customer.new unless the Customer class is defined.
Otherwise how would ruby know what to do?
All you need is models/customer.rb containing

class Customer < ActiveRecord::Base
end

Provided the customer table meets the normal Rails conventions
(primary key id and so on).

The model was used for controller connected database.Otherwise, you can
use
straight SQL with ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute.I would like to
use
model

If you don’t want to create a model you can use straight SQL with
ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute. I would create the model,
though. It would be the hell of a lot simpler and cleaner.
