db name change

Hi all,
Is it possible to do a db name change during the course of
the project and then propagate the effect all across the project?

        E.g. I started

of doing a sample program with db name as “tests”. As the project evolved I decided
to change its name to “biodatas”.

" create_table “tests”, :force => true do |t|
t.column “name”, :string, :limit => 45, :default => “”, :null => false

t.column "class", :integer, :limit => 10, :default => 0, :null => false
t.column "address", :string, :limit => 45, :default => "", :null => false
 t.column

“city”, :string, :limit => 45, :default => “”, :null => false
end

Making a migration with

  rename_table "tests", "biodatas"

will rename the table for you.

You'll have to search-and-replace in order to change mentions of Test
to Biodata in your code, unless you're using an IDE that can do this
for you.
