Breaking change in request.path_parameters

Reported by Sam Saffron | January 18th, 2010 @ 01:12 PM

In rails 2.3.5 request.path_parameters goes from string to string eg: {"action" => "foo", "controller" => "bar"}

In rails 3 request.path_parameters goes from symbol to string eg: {:action => "foo", :controller => "bar"}

Even though its more efficient this change regresses some places the depend on a parity between path_parameters and params since params still goes from string to string.

There should be parity here or it will cause confusion.

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    request.path_parameters is a HashWithIndifferentAccess object, as is params. There is no disparity.

    • Importance changed from “” to “Low”

    Just tested that on RC2 and request.path_parameters is definitely just a Hash (not HashWithIndifferentAccess) with symbols as keys.

    I'm pretty sure that this is intentional as there is symbolized_path_parameters. I suspect the change came about because path_parameters is stored in the rack environment hash.
