Actually i need to get
Contact's name and it's department id and it's Authority id and
so i done following query.
but its so long.
I don't know about join queries.
so pls help me how can i implemend join query instead of below query....
user = UserInfo.find_by_id(user_id)
=>Using this query I get user.first_name
contact = UserInfo.find_by_id(contact_id)
=>Using this query I get contact.first_name and contact.department_id
authority = PrivilegeInfo.find(:first, :conditions => [ "user_id =? and
department_id =? ", contact_id,contact.department_id])
=>Using this query I get authority.authority_id
authority_name = UserInfo.find_by_id(authority.authority_id)
=>Using this query I get authority_name.first_name
Thanks in advance
