Counter cache help

My :counter_cache column isn’t working properly.

I wouldn’t normally ask about a relatively trivial issue like this but I’ve been banging my head on this for a bit and haven’t gotten anywhere. I must be missing something simple. Please take a look:

class Comments < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :test_case, :counter_cache => true
end

class TestCases < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :test_case_to_users
has_many :comments
has_many :users, :through => :test_case_to_users

named_scope :broken, :conditions => [ “broken = ?”, true ]
named_scope :fixed, :conditions => [ “broken = ?”, false ]
named_scope :for_user, lambda { |user_id| { :include => :users, :conditions => [“users.id = ?”, user_id ] } }
end

class CreateComments < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :comments do |t|
t.string :name
t.string :body

  t.integer :test_case_id

  t.timestamps
end

end

def self.down
drop_table :comments
end
end

class CreateTestCases < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :test_cases do |t|
t.string :name
t.boolean :broken, :default => true

  t.integer :comments_count, :default => 0
 
  t.timestamps
end

end

def self.down
drop_table :test_cases
end
end

I’m getting the following:

NoMethodError: undefined method find' for ActiveRecord::TestCase:Class from /Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-2.3.2/lib/active_record/associations/belongs_to_association.rb:44:in find_target’

Any ideas?

Singularize your model names: Comment & TestCase

-e

Thats actually how I originally had it. I was playing around with pluralizing them as a last resort and forgot to change them back. I get the same error with:

class Comment < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :test_case, :counter_cache => true
end

class TestCase < ActiveRecord::Base
has_many :test_case_to_users
has_many :comments
has_many :users, :through => :test_case_to_users

named_scope :broken, :conditions => [ “broken = ?”, true ]
named_scope :fixed, :conditions => [ “broken = ?”, false ]
named_scope :for_user, lambda { |user_id| { :include => :users, :conditions => [“users.id = ?”, user_id ] } }
end

Sorry for the confusion,

Figured it out. TestCase is also defined by active record. It will probably be easiest to just rename it from TestCase to something else.
