[#849 #789] Remove - Backport for 2.7

Rails 2.3 doesn't work well as a rack-only app


Updated by Holger Just at 2012-01-26 08:22 pm

  • Target version deleted (2.7.0)
  • Affected version set to 2.6.0

This is a bug which was is caused by the introduction of the file for #789.

A quick workaround for thin is to use --adapter rails and to thus force it into rails mode instead of rack mode. That said, I'm trying to fix it for the next release.

I'm about to remove the whole file (and re-open #789). It causes too much trouble with Rails 2.3. Besides this issue there's also a problem of routing. If a request isn't matched by a route, an exception is thrown that can't easily be handled by any controller. Rails 3.1 and above do some magic in their dispatcher there. But I wouldn't want to re-implement this.

Thus, I think the most sensible cause of action id to son't supply a rack-only mode until we have move up to Rails >= 3.1.

That said, this immediate issue can be fixed with a simple dispatcher class in A patch can be found in the attachment.

I backported the fix for 2.7. So the numerically first version this is patch is present is 2.7. This is slightly out-of-protocol but I really wanted to have the patch in 2.7.

  • Target version changed from 3.0.0 to 2.7.0
