table name of an object

Hi,

how can I find out the table name of an object?

For example I have the object ua of the class UserArticle:
ua = UserArticle.find(1)

How can I find out it is saved in the table user_articles?

With AR::B.table_name :

UserArticle.table_name
# => "user_articles"

If you have the name of the class in a string and you're
following Rails conventions (and assuming you haven't a prefix
or a suffix), then you can write :

'UserArticle'.tableize
# => "user_articles"
