I have an engine and can access model-classes of the hosting app without any troubles.
But when I try to access classes that are defined in the lib-directory of the hosting app, they are not found and I get a
uninitialized constant Redmine
where Redmine is a module defined in the lib-directory of the hosting app. The lib-directory has added this dir to the autoload_paths, but the engine does not see them. The documentation (http://api.rubyonrails.org/classes/Rails/Engine.html) here is a litte vague:
Application class adds a couple more paths to this set. And as in your
Application, all folders under
app are automatically added to the load path. If you have an
app/observers folder for example, it will be added by default.
but the paths defined as autoload_paths are not added by default?!
Is there a way I can get the engine to load the classes in the lib-dir of the hosting app?!
thx for any help,
