Adding record in database table

Hi,
I have a question that Is it possible to add record into the database
table without adding the model for that?

E.g. I have a table customers. And I haven't created a model for that.
Can I add a record into that table bu doing "cust=Custome.new cust.save"

Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Tushar

You can't do Customer.new unless the Customer class is defined.
Otherwise how would ruby know what to do?
All you need is models/customer.rb containing

class Customer < ActiveRecord::Base
end

Provided the customer table meets the normal Rails conventions
(primary key id and so on).

If you don't want to create a model you can use straight SQL with
ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute. I would create the model,
though. It would be the hell of a lot simpler and cleaner.

The model was used for controller connected database.Otherwise, you can
use straight SQL with ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute.I would like to use model
