Why ":symbol" failed but 'symbol' successed with JRuby 1.0.3?

Hi,

I was running the test cases from Rails 1.2.6 Action Pack. The full text
of test is
herehttp://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/branches/1-2-stable/actionpack/test/controller/test_test.rb.
There is one case like this:

def test_process_with_session_arg
process :no_op, nil, { ‘string’ => ‘value1’, :symbol => ‘value2’ }
assert_equal ‘value1’, session[‘string’]
assert_equal ‘value1’, session[:string]
assert_equal ‘value2’, session[‘symbol’]
assert_equal ‘value2’, session[:symbol]
end
I was using JRuby 1.0.3 on a UNIX platform, to my surprised this case
only
first assert passed and all other three failed. The error message says
" expected but was "

After I changed ":symbol => ‘value2’ " to " ‘symbol’ => ‘value2’ ",
assert 1
and 3 passed but 2 and 4 were always failed. The error message was the
same.

These tests were passed on my Gentoo box with JRuby 1.0.3. The JVM are
the
same Java5.0.

What could be wrong for it? Theoratically JRuby is platform independent
and
I was using the same version of JVM on both UNIX and Gentoo. Why
‘symbol’
works but :symbol failed?

Thanks,

You really ought to be using JRuby 1.1.x…1.0.3 is the last maintenance
release to 1.0 and that line has not seen any updates in over a year.
1.1 just had a 1.1.3 release that’s worlds better as far as
compatibility and far faster. If this bug still exists in JRuby 1.1.3,
please file an issue for it :slight_smile:
