Strange Datamapper behavior


#1

I’ve been trying to make a simple many-to-many associations.

To get along with datamapper i copied the example from dm’s homepage.
Here we have few simple models for a blog.

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘dm-core’
require ‘dm-validations’
require ‘dm-timestamps’

DataMapper::Logger.new(STDERR, :debug)
DataMapper.setup(:default, ‘mysql://root@localhost/somedatabase’)

class Post
include DataMapper::Resource

…or the Serial custom-type which is functionally identical to

the above:
property :id, Serial, :key => true

…or pass a :key option for a user-set key like the name of a

user:
property :name, String

property :title, String
property :body, Text
property :created_at, DateTime
end

class Comment
include DataMapper::Resource
property :id, Serial

property :posted_by, String
property :email, String
property :url, String
property :body, Text
end

class Category
include DataMapper::Resource
property :id, Serial, :key => true
property :name, String
end

class Post
has n, :comments
end

class Comment
belongs_to :post
end

class Categorization
include DataMapper::Resource

property :id, Serial

property :created_at, DateTime

belongs_to :category
belongs_to :post
end

Now we re-open our Post and Categories classes to define

associations
class Post
has n, :categorizations
has n, :categories, :through => :categorizations, :mutable => true
end

class Category
has n, :categorizations
has n, :posts, :through => :categorizations, :mutable => true
end

DataMapper.auto_migrate!

Then i try to do things with this models somehow:

post = Post.create(:title => ‘first post’, :body => ‘first post body’)
post.save
post.comments.build(:body => ‘comment’)
post.save
post.categories.build(:name => ‘tag’)
post.save

and get ArgumentError exception: The property ‘post_id’ is not a
public property.

Exception goes from the line containing “post.categories.build(:name
=> ‘tag’)”.

I tried to dig in the code of datamapper to solve this, but it looks
too complicated for me. :frowning:

Did anyone had this problem?
