Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Many-to-many associations: Simple, part of Ruby on Rails 4 Essential Training.
…Now that we've learned how to create One-to-Many…Associations, ready to move on to learning Many-to-Many Associations.…We'll start by looking at a simple join and then…move on to a more complex join in the next movie.…Many-to-Many Associations are similar to…One-to-Many Associations, because they also…have an object that has many objects which belong to it.…The difference is that in many-to-many the objects don't belong to it exclusively.…For example, a project has and belongs to many collaborators.…The project can have many collaborators, but…the collaborators can also have many projects.…
It's not like a project owns a collaborator exclusively.…They're allowed to work on other projects.…You could have a blog post that has_and_belongs_to_many categories.…If our blog post is in both the technology and training categories,…it doesn't mean that no other blog post can be in those categories.…Technology can have many blog posts, training can have many blog…posts, and several blog posts can make use of those categories.…
