Circular dependency problem


#1

Hello,

I use rails 1.0
It seems that i encounter a circular dependency problem, and i can’t
manage to solve it.

With the following models

class Customer < ActiveRecord::Base
has_and_belongs_to_many :projects
end

class Project < ActiveRecord::Base
has_and_belongs_to_many :customers
end

And a file test.rhtml containg only
<%= Customer.count %>

I get the following error. Can someone explain me why and how to solve
it ?
(P.S.: search is disabled on this forum so maybe it’s already explained
somewhere but … :-))
