Rails 2.1 + Oracle

Hi all,

I am completely new to use Oracle with Rails (was using MySQL before). I
have some trouble to get my code work despite the rails abstraction.

My code was working perfectly with MySQL, but now when I am trying to
save some objects with a :though relation.

So I have a request objects with many relation to others. When I do
request.save I get an OCIError.
I saw that usually ORA-02289 was a problem of rights in the database but
in this case, the user have all rights. rake db:migrate get no errors at
all.

If someone have more experience with Rails and Oracle, you are welcome
:slight_smile:

Ok, I got it to work with enhanced oracle adapter. I think the problems
came from the timestamp column which seems not to be well supported by
the ‘standard’ oracle adapter.

Hi Again,

It seems that using Oracle with Rails is a little bit more complex than
with MySQL.

Is someone is aware of some caching process with Oracle, because I have
the following code:

account_check = AccountRequest.find_by_login(user)

if account_check
flash.now[:notice] = “A request is already pending for this user”
return
end

And despite the fact I have remove all entries in the account_requests
table, the controller still get some old data by oracle when I refresh
the page.

How can I solve this ?

Are you removing them in such a way that Rails knows?

AccountRequest.destroy_all

Also, a newer Oracle has the recycle bin feature, and you may find
calling execute "purge recyclebin" helpful.

Hi,

The problem is solved (I forgot to use ‘commit’ I have used mysql for
too long time). Now I have problems with Oracle Sequences (again as
shown in the first post) …

Oracle adapter assumes that you have “${table_name}_seq” sequence
defined for each of your tables. Also you can override the sequence
name with ActiveRecord::Base.set_sequence_name method.

I have a sequence for all table but the joined tables (used by has_many
:though), perhaps because of the :id => false option.

Now I removed all :id => false from join table, I have a problem of
ORA-00972: identifier is too long for sequences.

Do you know how to shorten the name of sequences ?

I solved that by shortening the table name
