Rails 2.0 to_xml error

I’m trying out the rails 2.0 preview release. Before, I upgraded my
Videos table used to serialize to xml with no errors. Now I get this:

Video.find(1)
=> #<Video id: 1, x: 128, y: 96, max_time: 0, max_file: 200000, mp4:
false, m3gp: false, m3g2: true, mp3g4: true, h263: false, g264: false,
amr: false, aac: false, qclep: true>

Video.find(1).to_xml

Here is my videos table if it helps:

class CreateVideos < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :videos do |t|

t.column :x, :integer
t.column :y, :integer
t.column :max_time, :integer
t.column :max_file, :integer
t.column :mp4, :boolean
t.column :m3gp, :boolean
t.column :m3g2, :boolean
t.column :mp3g4, :boolean
t.column :h263, :boolean
t.column :g264, :boolean
t.column :amr, :boolean
t.column :aac, :boolean
t.column :qclep, :boolean

end

end

def self.down
drop_table :videos
end
end

Any ideas?

P.S. to_yaml and to_json work on this object…

Intersterting… If I don’t include the y column in the table the
serialization works:

t.column :x, :integer
#t.column :y, :integer
t.column :max_time, :integer
t.column :max_file, :integer
t.column :mp4, :boolean
t.column :m3gp, :boolean
t.column :m3g2, :boolean
t.column :mp3g4, :boolean
t.column :h263, :boolean
t.column :g264, :boolean
t.column :amr, :boolean
t.column :aac, :boolean
t.column :qclep, :boolean

Video.new.to_xml
=> “<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>\n\n <aac type=
“boolean”>\n <amr type=“boolean”>\n <g264 type=
“boolean”>\n <h263 type=“boolean”>\n <m3g2 type=
“boolean”>\n <m3gp type=“boolean”>\n <max-file
type=“integer”>\n <max-time type=“integer”>
\n <mp3g4 type=“boolean”>\n <mp4 type=“boolean”>
\n <qclep type=“boolean”>\n <x type=“integer”>\n</
video>\n”

Can somebody try to reproduce this? Or is it something special with
me.

I’m on osx rails 2.0 via gem install rails --source
http://gems.rubyonrails.org

Just to isolate things I created a new project with just one table
with one column.

class CreateVideos < ActiveRecord::Migration
def self.up
create_table :videos do |t|
t.integer :x
t.timestamps
end
end

def self.down
drop_table :videos
end
end

This works, but when I rename ‘x’ to ‘y’ it .to_xml breaks again:

Video.new.to_xml

Strange, something up with ‘y’?

Here’s the referenced line from the stack trace:

This is calling YAML’s Kernel#y method instead of your ‘y’ attribute.

Attribute reader methods are defined for columns which don’t already
have a method with the same name. The test for methods with the same
name has been in flux and, in this case, is casting too wide a net.

Tobi worked around the problem in
http://dev.rubyonrails.org/changeset/7731. The fix will be available
in the next preview gem or you can rake rails:freeze:edge to get it
now.

Best,
jeremy

I just ran rake rails:freeze:edge and I still get the error:

Video.new.to_xml
ArgumentError: wrong number of arguments (0 for 1)

lib/active_record/serializers/xml_serializer.rb:292:in `compute_value’

Thanks for confirming this.

I don’t think the rails update worked because when i run scrip/console
it reports an older rails version:

alex-eggs-computer:~/sites/mms-service eggie5$ script/console
Loading development environment (Rails 1.2.4)


  * config.breakpoint_server has been deprecated and has no

effect. *


Video.new.to_xml

alex-eggs-computer:~/sites/mms-service eggie5$ script/console
Loading development environment (Rails 1.2.4)


  * config.breakpoint_server has been deprecated and has no

effect. *


RAILS_GEM_VERSION
=> “1.2.3”

Actually, since you are using the rake method, this variable has no
impact. Sorry.

What is your RAILS_GEM_VERSION set to?

See my reply to your other post about this. The version number will be
updated for official release.

Please file a ticket at http://dev.rubyonrails.org for your .to_xml
issue.

Can you reproduce this?

I just synched to the latest trunk (7754) and I’m still getting the
error.
