Nuby: do models have to inherit directly from ActiveRecord?

That’s how you do it.

What’s really brittle, though, is my brain. This is my first RoR
app, and
parts of rails (convention over config, built-in ORM and testing) I
immediately loved. But some stuff seems like it would be, well,
[puts on
fireproof suit] easier in Java. I’m still sort of waiting for it
all to come
together in my mind.

A few things are harder than they should be, like subclassing
ActiveRecord::Base. Rather than make the common thing easy,
ActiveRecord reserves subclassing for a seldom-used feature.

Anyways, apologies for being a dunce. Any guidance on how to best
handle the
abstract base class question would be much appreciated.

Bite the bullet and add those methods.
