def belongs_to(name, options = {}, &block)
  define_association!(__method__, name, options, &block)
end

#embedded_in(name, options = {}, &block) ⇒ Object

Examples:

Define the association.


class Person
  include Mongoid::Document
  embeds_many :addresses
end

class Address
  include Mongoid::Document
  embedded_in :person
end

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol)
