I’m just now getting around to trying out Rails 2. I used Rails 1
briefly. Back then I was able to start with an existing database that
followed ActiveRecord conventions, run a few simple commands, and get
a basic web app. up and running. It seems that has changed in Rails 2.
Am I required to describe the columns of my tables for Rails 2 and/or
modify generated code? I really want Rails to get information about
the columns from my database schema and generate starting code for me.
If I have to describe the tables myself, can someone point me at some
documentation that describes the steps?
