Multiple Repository migration and association issues

Reported by Carl Porth | January 8th, 2010 @ 02:27 PM

Running auto_migrate! with multiple repositories creates tables on incorrect repository.

Also, running cross repository queries uses tables from the wrong repositories.

This standalone script demonstrates these issues:

    I've added some specs for associations on a topic branch at http://github.com/badcarl/dm-core/tree/multiple_repos

    My general strategy is to place each model in its own repository so all associations are run on multiple repositories. For simplicity, each repo is a different sqlite3 db which makes setup easy for the dev.

    This introduces an issue with has n, :through as there currently doesn't exist a way to specify the :through model repository, so I added the option :through_repository.

    Shared specs that don't pass are commented out with TODO tags added.

    Some of the cross-repository query issues (like m:m across more than 1 repo) probably won't be solvable in the near term. See #925 for more info on that.

    Other queries like 1:m, m:1 and 1:1 can probably be made to work since we don't really use joins for those, but rather use the key value in an explicit query on the target.

    Do these specs actually pass? Perhaps we can discuss this next time we're both on IRC at the same time.
