I have some simple models that inherit from a parent (using STI). In
all but one case, all of the validations are declared in the parent
class InfoRequest < ActiveRecord::Base
… etc …
In one of the child models, I need to add one more validation rule (it
has an extra attribute) like so:
class CreditInfoRequest < InfoRequest
Except doing this seems to blow away all my validations for this model.
If I don’t declare any validations in the child model, the parent’s
validations are inherited and run just fine. But the minute I add
validations to the child, both it’s and the inherited validations fail
BTW, I can get around this by overriding the validate method in the
child model but that just bugs me.
Can someone shed some light on this?
