Attributes missing in an ActiveResource if they are present in route

Reported by Yuri | March 13th, 2009 @ 04:02 PM | in 3.x

If one of attributes is present if route definition of an ActiveResource class, an instantiated object will not have it in @attributes.


  class Shop < ActiveResource::Base = ""

After I read a shop from the server, the ActiveResource instance does not contain operator_id in @attributes, and consequently, no setter and getter methods for operator_id.

A shop belongs to an operator, the attribute is present in the xml sent and I would really expect this to happen.

Instead of @attributes the attribute is present is @prefix_options:

#<Shop:0x1819f74 @prefix_options={:operator_id=>1} ...

This happens with all attributes present in the route.

If ActiveResource is supposed to mimic ActveRecord, this doesn't make sense.
