[#441] Journals should touch their journaled to update updated_on/at fields


Updated by Eric Davis at 2011-06-02 04:57 am

Having problems getting this to work. All it should be is to just add "touch" to a Journal (belongs_to :journaled, :touch => true) but I'm now having to fix (brittle) tests in issues nested set, reload records in a bunch of tests, and now aaj isn't updating it's journal version (JournalObserverTest).

Could someone try this out and see if I'm missing something simple. I've already spent 4 hours on this...

Found out that the JournalObserverTest wasn't creating the initial journals correctly sometimes which was causing the version problems. I ended up fixing the test by removing the fixtures and adding in factories.

Eric, we're having problems with StaleObjectErrors in migrations for journalized objects (similar to wiki pages), in tests, and I somehow remember other people having those too, I can't find them here though.

Anyway, I was able to find a (probable) culprit, it's the :touch => true part in source:/app/models/journal.rb#L27, which gets triggered again if there's stuff done on the journal after it's been saved, as is e.g. the case with the update_attribute in source:/app/models/wiki_content.rb#L96. I understand the need to touch the journalized object on journal creation, but it's not necessary on journal post-processing (I'd even say it's wrong).

Would you agree to moving the touch action to an after_create callback instead of having it in an after_save/after_destroy (see add_touch_callbacks about that)?

Attach is the proposed change in git patch format. The tests run fine on MySQL.
