# Returns a String, which Action Pack uses for constructing an URL to this
# object. The default implementation returns this record's id as a String,
# or nil if this record's unsaved.
#
# For example, suppose that you have a User model, and that you have a
# <tt>resources :users</tt> route. Normally, +user_path+ will
# construct a path with the user object's 'id' in it:
#
# user = User.find_by_name('Phusion')
# user_path(user) # => "/users/1"
#
# You can override +to_param+ in your model to make +user_path+ construct
# a path using the user's name instead of the user's id:
#
# class User < ActiveRecord::Base
# def to_param # overridden
# name
# end
# end
#
# user = User.find_by_name('Phusion')
# user_path(user) # => "/users/Phusion"
def to_param
# We can't use alias_method here, because method 'id' optimizes itself on the fly.
id && id.to_s # Be sure to stringify the id for routes
end
# Returns a cache key that can be used to identify this record.
#
# ==== Examples
#
# Product.new.cache_key # => "products/new"
# Product.find(5).cache_key # => "products/5" (updated_at not available)
# Person.find(5).cache_key # => "people/5-20071224150000" (updated_at available)
