Hi P. Pantouffe,

with : ActiveRecord::Base.connection.tables

P. Pantouffe :

I have another one :). How can i get a list with all the classes in the
application after i wrote several models. ?

In production mode, for AR:B-based models :

ActiveRecord::Base.send(:subclasses)

but I'm not so sure...

Not exactly what you are asking for, but might be useful:
