Need a way to order by a given count property

Reported by Aadi Deshpande | August 4th, 2008 @ 09:55 AM

Given this heirarchy

class Topic

include DM::Resource

property :id, Integer, :serial => true

property :subject, String

property :body, String

has n, :comments


class Comment

include DM::Resource

property :id, Integer, :serial => true

property :body, String

belongs_to :topic


I would like to do something like so :

Comment.aggregate( :body.count, :fields => [:topic_id] , :order => [ :body_count ], :limit => 10 )

so that i can order by the count

It seems there's no way currently to do that

It would also be great if there was a way to do generic aliasing of properties in "selection-type" queries such as aggregates ( ones that return an array of field values instead of collections of models )
