find_by_xxx! bang method, have better error messages

Reported by Zach Dennis | December 12th, 2008 @ 09:49 PM | in 2.x

It would be nice if the find_by_xxx! bang methods gave nicer error messages. Right now you get:

> Expense.find_by_amount(10)
=> nil
>> Expense.find_by_amount!(10)
ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound: ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound

It would be better if the error produced was:

ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound: no Expense found with amount => 10
