Naming collision when referring to delegatated 'App' model in console

Reported by twigbranch | November 20th, 2010 @ 12:04 AM

class Foo < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_one :bar
  delegate :app, :to => :bar

class Bar < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :app

class App < ActiveRecord::Base

In console:
=> ActionDispatch::Integration::Session

It seems to think I'm actually calling console's 'app' method.

Why this appears to be a bug:
- From what I can tell 'App' is not reserved (and is an important name, like Friend, or Book, or Comment, etc to have available),
- returns the actual App object
- this only occurs in console

    The example can be simplified by defining #app in Bar as a normal method.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
