Loading fixtures for a module's model

Reported by Jonathan Démoutiez | December 24th, 2008 @ 02:49 PM | in 3.x

The load of fixtures doesn't detect models includes in modules so :

module RailsCommerce class Product < ActiveRecord::Base end end

We should to specify :

set_fixture_class :rails_commerce_products => RailsCommerce::Product

This patch detects automatically modules.

    Bumping this one and sending along a reminder to look at #1976 which deals with namespaces in scaffold generator.

    Seems related to #675 "fixtures: consider fixture_class_names to find fixture_class file"

    As Koz said in #1976, modules should not be prefixed with table_names:

    module RailsCommerce
      class Product < ActiveRecord::Base
    RailsCommerce::Product.table_name #=> "products"

    So we have two issues:

    1) fixtures cannot be loaded when a set_table_name is used in the model
    2) fixtures cannot be loaded when using modules (see #2965)

    Your ticket solves a special condition when both problems happen: you use modules and set the table name in them.

    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.
