When doing a has_and_belongs_to_many join, with two tables, rails
expects a join table whose name is the concatenation of the two table
names in an alphabetical order.
However i have a number of tables which do not follow this convection
and wish to have rails read and recognize them.
for example i have a table called feature and another called cvterm. The
join table is however named feature_cvterm (rails would expect one
called cvterm_feature) So it happily responds by generating an error
that the table can’t be found or rather the class,
i wish to have rails recognize the feature_cvterm join table.
Which is the easiest way to do it?
Please forgive my ignorance
( again the tribulations of working with a legacy database.)
