Camel Cased Column Names in Legacy Database

Reported by dugancathal | November 24th, 2010 @ 04:03 PM

I have a database that I'm trying to wrap in a Rails 3 application that makes use of camel cased column and table names. While trying to make the associations work properly in the Rails layer, the :foreign_key attribute of the association method keeps reverting the column name to lowercased and underscored. (ie. :scoutCableModem becomes scout_cable_modem)
