Active Record connects classes to relational database tables to establish
an almost zero-configuration persistence layer for applications. The
library provides a base class that, when subclassed, sets up a mapping
between the new class and an existing table in the database. In the context
of an application, these classes are commonly referred to as models.
Models can also be connected to other models; this is done by defining
Active Record relies heavily on naming in that it uses class and association names to establish mappings between respective database tables and foreign key columns. Although these mappings can be defined explicitly, it's recommended to follow naming conventions, especially when getting started with the library.
