The Component1.reflections hash is probably what you want.

Hi Guys,


Can anyone tell me how I can dynamically enumerate the associations defined for a model?   I'm developing an inventory application in which I need to identify the possible sub-components for any given component.  I've defined the parts explosion hierarchy through associations in the models for the various component types, e.g.


   Class Component1 < ActiveRecord::Base

      has_many :subcomponent1s

      has_one     :subcomponent2

      belongs_to  :supercomponent1



To manage recursive processes, I'd like to be able to identify all the tables I need to search to grab all the possible sub-components for any component, as well as the components to which any sub-component may belong.  Does anyone know how to do that or where I might look to figure that out?
