How do I structure a Bookings table for two models?
I've primarly built out support to book a flight, and now I'm looking to offer the ability to book a hotel as well. I'm looking for some insight on the best way to model this:
Currently there is a Reservations table that has a
user_id. Does it make sense to create an entirely new table for Hotel reservations, or modify the exisiting Reservations table to support polymorphic assocaitons? Instead of
flight_id, it would have a
reservable_id. Off the top of my mind, ActiveRecord will be unable to build any join from a polymorphic assocation without additional information.
