Default Chapter 7 Page 206


Just want to know how to preload classes inside ApplicationControler.
See page 206 ch07
Here is the code

class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
model: purchase


Rails does not recognize model .It say undefined method model.

How to include cart and purchase model in ApplicationController?

Default Work around?

I encountered the same issue and after poking around I tried
class ApplicationController < ActionController::Base
  helper :all # include all helpers, all the time
  protect_from_forgery # See ActionController::RequestForgeryProtection for details

  # Pg. 206 - Doesn't work in Rails 2.x
  # model :cart
  # model :purchase
  require 'Cart'
  require 'Purchase'

It got past the error, not sure if it is doing what it is suppose to or not.
