Decimal-field problem

Hi,

I’m new to Ruby, Rails and this forum… so bear with me, thx.

I have kind of a strange problem…

I got a decimal field in a mysql table (precision 3, scale 1) for
numbers like: “12”, or “12.4”; Problem is, whenever I input “0.5” as a
number, rails stores “5.0” in the db…
Even when I edit the db by hand, it displays “5.” ?

I just don’t get what’s going on. Do u got any ideas?

Maybe your problem is related to localization issues. Are you using some
localization plugins, such as Globalize or any other?

You should see the content of log/development file to find how Rails is
writing the SQL commands. Then you’ll have a hint of what is
happening…

Anyway, check if you are using the latest version of Rails…

Good luck,

Rodrigo.

Hi Rodrigo,

I’m using the Netbeans 6.0 Beta with the Ruby environment they provide
with their ruby kit. Looking at the version numbers, almost everything
is up-to-date, except Ruby which is a 1.8.5 (although it’s the JRuby
variant not native Ruby).
So I decided, to get the “original” and got Rails through Gems natively.
So now, Ruby is at 1.8.6 and Rails still up-to-date, but obtained in
another way than before, and guess what: Now it’s all working. So I
guess something in Suns Distribution is still wonky…
Well thanks for the hints :wink:
