Update_all Not Incrementing lock_version

Shouldn’t update_all be updating lock_version? As you can see from my
console session below, it is upating the record (changed running
attribute to true and returned 1 to show 1 recored was updated). But it
did not increment lock_version. And optimistic locking is working
correctly otherwise. As you can see below, lock version = 562 before
and after the update_all call but it is incremented to 563 when I save()
the object.

Am I missing something here?

Thanks, Don

Comments anyone? Unless I’m making a newbie mistake this is a

OK. I’m NOT an SQL expert, but I think I know why this is the case. It
is because of the way update_all queries are structured.

For example:

UPDATE jobs SET jobs.running = 1 WHERE (id in (10,11,12))

There is no reference to the lock_version column. Please know that I’m
a total SQL hack. But why couldn’t we do this instead?

Assuming:

±—±-------------+
| id | lock_version |
±—±-------------+
| 10 | 1340 |
| 11 | 1333 |
| 12 | 807 |
±—±-------------+

UPDATE jobs
SET jobs.running = 1
WHERE (id in (10,11,12)
AND lock_version in (1340, 1333, 807));

This seems to do the trick. Don’t even ask me how optimistic locking
exception handling would work for this kind of update. I’ll leave that
to the professionals. :wink:

Thoughts?

BTW : At the very least, we need the update_all documentation to reflect
the fact it’s not honoring optimistic locking. And if it’s too tricky
to add support for it then I might have to look into another approach.
Maybe a stored proc.
