UltraSphinx Concatenate Syntax?


#1

Hey everyone,

I hope someone on this group can help me with an UltraSphinx question.
I am using rails 2.3.2 and I am trying to figure out how
to search my “has_many” model. Here’s the example…
I can search my “Account” model just fine. My Account model
“has_many :names”
I would like to search my Account model, and my Name model at the
same
time. I have seen a few examples, but I can’t seem to get it to
work.
I am pretty familiar with SQL, but I haven’t done a JOIN in a while,
and I usually get them backwards if I don’t have an example to
follow.

Quick run down…

account.rb

has_many :names, :dependent => :destroy

is_indexed :fields => [‘s_property_no’, ‘s_service_address’],
:concatenate => [{ :class_name => ‘Name’, :field =>
‘name’, :association_sql => “LEFT JOIN accounts ON
(accounts.id = name.account_id)”, :as => ‘accounts’ }]
end

name.rb

belongs_to :account

I am sure I have the “is_indexed” statement messed up. This is where
I
need the help. My “search” function is defined in the “accounts
controller”. The only other question I have is what do I put in my
view so the name can be displayed in addition to the account
information? I know how to display the account info, just not the
name
info.

Thanks!

Chris
