[PATCH] Adds update_attribute! method to the ActiveRecord::Base

Reported by Indrek Juhkam | December 1st, 2009 @ 05:47 PM

Similar to the ActiveRecord#update_attribute method, except this one goes through the normal validation procedure. An exception is raised if the record is invalid.

    • State changed from “new” to “wontfix”
    • Assigned user set to “Pratik”

    According to the api docs for update_attribute:

    Updates a single attribute and saves the record without going through the normal validation procedure. This is especially useful for boolean flags on existing records.

    If you need validations you can just use update_attributes.
