I have a cronjob that runs "ruby script/runner 'Channel.preload'". Channel is a parent model, Item is the child model (i.e., Channel has_many :items and Item belongs_to :channel). The coupling is minimized, the coherence looks good, but I'm not sure the model is the right place to put this code. Is there a better place to put this code, e.g., a component (I don't really understand components and attempts to use them haven't worked as expected/advertised). The code could go in a module, i.e., all the added code is class methods. TIA, Jeffrey

Without knowing what you're doing, it looks fine. Script/runner is going to give you access to anything in your rails application so what you're doing should be fine. However, my solution was to create a class called 'Run' and put all of the commands that would be called from outside of the web app in that class. It helped me keep things organized a bit better.
