Application Record and Application Job

Application Record and Application Job: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features
Application Record and Application Job: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

ApplicationRecord and ApplicationJob are new default classes in Ruby on Rails 5 which are customizable super-classes for all models and jobs. They are similar to ApplicationController and ApplicationHelper. Instead of overriding ActiveRecord::Base or ActiveJob::Base directly, a process known as “monkey-patching”, the intermediary class allows these classes to stay pristine and instead adds new features and Ruby modules tonly to classes that inherit from ApplicationRecord and ApplicationJob.
