What is Active Record? 

  • Active Record is a Ruby library (represented by ActiveRecord module) that provides mapping between business objects and database tables 
    • Accessing, saving, creating, updating operations in your Rails code are performed through Active Record 
  • It‘s an Object-Relational Mapper (ORM) 
    • "An object that wraps a row in a database table or view, encapsulates the database access, and adds domain logic on that data."
  • Your domain (model) class extends ActiveRecord::Base class 
    • In this presentation, we use the terms domain class, model class, ActiveRecord class interchangeably
