Programmatic way to find associations? (ActiveRecord)


#1

Is there a programmatic way to find the different associations that an
particular model has?

For example, if I have the following:

class File < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :directory
has_many :comments
end

is there a way to get the list of symbols/strings that this class has
associated under the has_many association?

Take a look at YourClass.reflections and the various reflect_on_xxx
methods
