Creating a View(database) with Migration

Hi,

Is there a way to create a view using ruby migration? I could run a
quick sql script to create a view, but I wanted to do this with
migration to make it easier during deployment.

Thanks,
Kumi

You can put execute statements in your migration.

I was looking for something equivalent to create_table, but this is
pretty handy. Thanks!

I’d offer the observation that scopes in active record can easily
serve the function of views in many cases.

Thanks for the info. I’ll have some warehousing to do in the future,
so rails_sql_view will be perfect!

@Rick DeNatale
I have yet to make use of scopes (still learning… ). Thanks for
pointing me in that direction. I just read this page:
http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveRecord/NamedScope/ClassMethods.html
Looks like this is what I should do for what I’m trying to do… pretty
simple!
