[PATCH] ActiveRecord does not write invalid datetime and timestamp data when enable time zone support

Reported by ihower | December 29th, 2009 @ 09:39 PM

Suppose I have a model "Event" with datetime and timestamp attributes, and we assign invalid data to them:

=> true
e = :datetime => "AAA", :timestamp => "BBB", :integer => "CCC" )
=> { "datetime" => nil, "timestamp" => nil, "integer" => "CCC" }


=> { "datetime" => "AAA", "timestamp" => "BBB", "integer" => "CCC }

BTW, the result is right if we disable time zone support:

ActiveRecord::Base.time_zone_aware_attributes = false
e = :datetime => "AAA", :timestamp => "BBB", :integer => "CCC" )
=> { "datetime" => "AAA", "timestamp" => "BBB", "integer" => "CCC }
