require file in rails

Hi,
I have a file called dbcon.rb that I put in the config directory.

I want to call it from rake, and I was using
require ‘config/dbcon.rb’

This was allowing me to access the classes in this file.

Somehow, the require command cannot find this file anymore. Is there a path convention in rails? How do I use require from different parts of my application?

Sincerely,
Kaushik

You could move it to the lib directory, or write
   require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/config/dbcon.rb"
