I’m trying to figure out how to created nested resources for a
controller that can have two different “parent” controllers. For
Take the following models:
- Comment (business_id, event_id, etc…
A Comment can be associated with either a business or an event. An
event can be associated with a business, but does not have to be.
I can obviously set up the standard REST routes for a Comment. but I’d
like to setup nested resources but can’t figure out how to get it to
work for both an Event and a Business.
Ideally, I’d like the following routes:
Can this be accomplished with just one Comments controller? If so, how
do you set it up? As well, I’d like some fields on the Comments[new|
edit] form to change depending on whether it’s being created inside a
business or inside an event.
I though about creating two additional controllers that subclass off
of Controller and calling them BusinessComments and EventsComments,
but this doesn’t seem like a Rails-way of doing it.
(Note that I can easily change my db schema if there is a better way
to model these relationships.)
Thanks for any help,
