ActiveRecord does not serialize core data types

Reported by Master Lambaster | July 13th, 2010 @ 09:28 AM

ActiveRecord serialize seems not properly handling core data types like Fixnum, Float etc with class constraint and without it.
I don't know is this bug or it's how AR serialization is designed to work.
Anyway tests are attached. Same issue on master and 2-3-stable.

One of the test is rather a suggestion: allow to set multiple class constraints for serialization via array.
For instance:

class Topic < ActiveRecord::Base
  serialize :content, [Trend, Subject]
If needed it can be moved into separate ticket.

    This issue has been automatically marked as stale because it has not been commented on for at least three months.

    The resources of the Rails core team are limited, and so we are asking for your help. If you can still reproduce this error on the 3-0-stable branch or on master, please reply with all of the information you have about it and add "[state:open]" to your comment. This will reopen the ticket for review. Likewise, if you feel that this is a very important feature for Rails to include, please reply with your explanation so we can consider it.

    Thank you for all your contributions, and we hope you will understand this step to focus our efforts where they are most helpful.
