rails 2.2 ruby 1.8.x mysql 5.0.84

Newbie to ruby/rails. I am on page 23 of the book and when I finally got the “people” app working, the “New” page does not show the form elements ( although the table and the first_name, last_name column exists in MySQL database people_development ). I see on the console the command as “show fields in people”, and when i run this from mysql, it does show the 3 columns ( id, first_name, last_name ). So I am not sure why these two fields do not get generated in the html form ? Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks

Issue fixed. I saw the other forum posting on “instant rails” and generating the scaffold was the issue.

ruby script\generate scaffold Person first_name:string last_name:string

Now the sample people app works.

Can the authors update the ebook because this is the first example ?

Thanks
