I guess I am the only one using it like this, by i regularly start my `rails console` to quickly show the column-names of models. Since 4.1 (afaik), the first call to a class does not return the model introspection, but instead urges me to use `Batch.connection` to establish a connection??? If I use a specific method to get the column names, I get no error, and afterwards the class introspection just works. Of course this is no biggie, but I am curious what the cause is of the this behaviour, whether this is intended or not, and how I could circumvent it. Example console output: ``` Loading development environment (Rails 4.1.0) :001 > Batch => Batch (call 'Batch.connection' to establish a connection) :002 > Batch.column_names => ["id", "name", "batch_nr", "revision", "comments", "batch_status_id", "created_at", "updated_at"] :003 > Batch => Batch(id: integer, name: string, batch_nr: string, revision: string, comments: text, batch_status_id: integer, created_at: datetime, updated_at: datetime) ``` Any tips or hints would be greatly appreciated.

I've noticed that, and it seems like a bug to me, but I haven't had the time to investigate. That said, this behavior doesn't occur when using `pry` for the Rails console, so just one more reason to make that standard :-) FWIW, -- Hassan Schroeder ------------------------ firstname.lastname@example.org http://about.me/hassanschroeder twitter: @hassan

I got the same behaviour in Rails 4.0.8
