RE: Oracle and Rails seems really slow.... In development


#1

No patch yet because I just don’t have the time to make patches (never
learned how to do the diff stuff) but I did contact the current
maintainer and did hear back from him a couple of days ago so we’ll see
what happens next. Right now I just made a plugin to patch it for my
apps.

I’ll gladly post the plugin as a zip on my server if anyone cares.

We care! We care!

Hi,

I’m uploading a raw image into a blob column and noticed that unless
I overwrote the model attribute writer that Rails would try to load a
ruby object for the image instead of just the raw data. So in the
model I did this:

 def picture=(picture_field)
     write_attribute(:picture, picture_field.read)
 end

and things work fine (though I don’t really know what I’m doing) …
except if the user fails to select an image to upload, in which cases
I get an error:

undefined method "read" for string ""

Any ideas for avoiding this error message in these cases? It seems
like some kind of conditional wrapped around the write_attribute
command should work, probably some IO method that will test for the
ability to read a stream (am I working with a stream here?) … or
maybe there’s a better way to upload a raw image.

Thanks,
russ

It’s on my list, should be able to get a patch submitted for this by the
end of the week. Note that I’m still concerned about the revised query.
But I’ve been sent a few different options, and one of them will work
out.
