Problem with set_table_name and custom method in model

Hi,

When I try to run this command I got a table does not exist.

Vehicule.get_vehicule(123,1123)

class Vehicule < ActiveRecord::Base

  set_table_name "table_a"

  def self.get_vehicule( inte_no, poas_no)
     find_by_inte_no_and_poas_no( inte_no, poas_no)
  end
end

It looks like if you have a custom method in your model, the
"set_table_name" is not taken as the real table name. As soon I rename
my model the name of the table(which is not what I want) the
get_vehicule worked.

I'm on Rails edge.

I recall having a similar problem. I believe I got around it by
overriding the table_name method on the class, e.g.:

class Vehicule < ActiveRecord::Base

def self.table_name
  "table_a"
end

end

Thanks for the response. But it does not seem to work. I have the same
problem.

any other ideas?

Just a guess but maybe it will work if instead of self. you use
Vehicle. when defining the method:

Vehicule.get_vehicule(...)
