Can't dup Fixnum


#1

I know this mst be a newbie error, but here goes: I have two classes

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
has_one :associate
end

and

class Associate < ActiveRecord::Base
belongs_to :user
end

These are one-to-one. In other words, Associate has one User and vice
versa, and they Associate.id=User.associate_id and
Associate.user_id=User.id

I go to create a new User…I want the Associate to be created
automatically (in fact, duplicating the username and email field, and
putting in a start date). I want to update the User.associate_id and
the Associate.user_id.

What follows is my UsersController for doing this, which is throwing

class UsersController < ApplicationController
def new
@user = User.new
end

def create
@user = User.new(params[:user])
@user.associate_id=0
associate = Associate.new()
associate.email=@user.email
associate.username=@user.login
associate.startdate=Date.today
if @user.save
associate.user_id=@user.id
associate.save
@user.associate_id=associate.id
@user.update_attributes(@user.associate_id)
flash[:notice] = “Registration successful.”
redirect_to root_url
else
render :action => ‘new’
end
end

end

and here is the log that gets created:

I have not examined the trace in detail but I don’t believe you should
have
an associate_id column in the users table. If you think about it, it is
redundant. Rails will expect a user_id column in the associates table
and
will use that to make the connection both ways.

#3

Assuming that this is line 17:
@user.update_attributes(@user.associate_id)
You need to look at what the #update_attributes method really does.
The argument should be a hash of attribute=>value pairs.

Also, for the association has_one/belongs_to

 User#id <==> Associate#user_id

There is no foreign key in the User model. It will find the Associate
with something similar to:
SELECT associates.* FROM associates WHERE associates.user_id =
#{user.id} LIMIT 1
when you do user.associate in your code.
