Oracle Adapter with DateTime conversion not working

I’m trying to find all people that we’re created at a specific date and
time, however rails does not seem to be performing the correct
conversion into oracle’s format. Should this work by default? I can
fix it by wrapping in a date function, but I thought this was something
that should be handled by the adapater.


#The query it generates
FROM people
WHERE created_at = ‘2008-04-15 12:00:00’

#The Oracle Error
SQL Error: ORA-01861: literal does not match format string
01861. 00000 - “literal does not match format string”
*Cause: Literals in the input must be the same length as literals in
the format string (with the exception of leading whitespace).
If the
“FX” modifier has been toggled on, the literal must match
with no extra whitespace.
*Action: Correct the format string to match the litera


This is not due to the Oracle Adapter.
You need to write the SQL like this:

FROM people
WHERE created_at = to_date(‘2008-04-15 12:00:00’, ‘YYYY-MM-dd HH-MI-SS’)
