Topic: Should we generate models for an existing MySQL database with data?
I've been working through the many examples of how one uses 'generate' model to create the model.rb and the migrate and fixtures file.
It occured to me that maybe I should manually create these as the whenever I start the production application it will already have customer data in it (as I converted their old legacy system)and I won't be creating the database schema.
I'm thinking now that I should take all of the existing migrate files and consolidate them into one? Then I'll manually create all of the model.rb files and fixtures.
Is this how you start up an application with an existing database?
RyanB are you there?
