I am trying to do the following: - initialise a class variable for a model class (@@sub_types = ) - store an array of values into this class variable during the initial load of a "model" class - use this class variable and the populated array within a class method in the same model when servicing subsequent HTTP requests to my application My tests show that the class variable is initialised/populated when the model class is first loaded (triggered by a model method call in class ApplicationController) BUT does not persist for use when processing requests. fyi, I have configured development.rb to cache classes. Why is the class variable not persisting across requests? Thanks.
