== Requirements

This extension is for Rails 2.x

For rails 1, please see the original extension: http://svn.viney.net.nz/things/rails/plugins/active_record_base_without_table/

    
  
== Instructions

Get the power of ActiveRecord models, including validation, without having a table in the database.

  class Contact < ActiveRecord::BaseWithoutTable
    column :name, :string
    column :email_address, :string
    column :message, :text
    
    validates_presence_of :name, :email_address, :message
  end
  
This model can be used just like a regular model based on a table, except it will never be saved to the database.

There are good blog posts available on the plugin:
