Sean is yet another Java programmer burning the midnight oil with Ruby on Rails. Among many kind words, he offers a simple example on how to beat the dreaded 1+1 problem that a naive ORM will kill performance on any iterations with.
However, that doesn't solve the 1+1/iteration problem because this will face the same issue. But the solution is much simpler and elegant. I modify the Account class to:class Account < ActiveRecord::Base has_one :owner def self.find_with_owner find_all( 'select a.*, o.first_name, o.last_name ' + 'from account a and owner o ' + 'where a.owner_id = o.owner_id' ) end end
Welcome on board, Sean. I hope the productivity gains you've experience will allow that midnight oil to be replaced with a day-time engagement.
