That’s how you do it.
What’s really brittle, though, is my brain. This is my first RoR
parts of rails (convention over config, built-in ORM and testing) I
immediately loved. But some stuff seems like it would be, well,
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
abstract base class question would be much appreciated.
Bite the bullet and add those methods.
