Hi, I wish to use single table inheritance with a legacy database. The problem is that the "type" column holds numeric keys instead of strings (because or performance issues blah blah...) For example, in a table 'Components' the value 1 in type means that I have a DialogComponent, 2 means ProcessComponent, ... I'd like to have models like this : class Component < ActiveRecord::Base; end; class DialogComponent < Component; end; class ProcessComponent < Component; end; but I can't see how to achieve this. Thanks for your help, Stephane.
