Unable to use fixtures for testing models that make use of the postgres schema construct

Reported by Sam Meder | February 26th, 2010 @ 12:21 AM

This problem seems to exist in both rails 2.3.5 and 3.0.0beta.

I am working on a app where I would really like to make use of some form of namespace construct in my database schema. Since we're working with postgres (8.4) this happens to be the 'schema' construct.

To test that this is feasible, I created a custom migration to set up the schema followed by a customized model driven migration. So far, so good. Next I moved the the auto generated fixture file to ..yml and wrote a simple unit test for one of the validations associated with the model.

Now, when I try running the unit test with rake test:units the process fails in the setup phase. In particular, the call to connection.reset_pk_sequence! from Fixtures.create_fixtures(...) fails since the sequence relation discovered by connection.pk_and_sequence_for(table) is not schema (namespace) qualified.

I've attached a patch to the postgresql adapter that fixes this issue for me, but I am uncertain if it is generic enough to work with other versions of postgres.
