ConnectionAdapter.create_table generates '()' when field list is empty

Reported by tribalvibes | August 21st, 2010 @ 11:48 PM

With Rails/ActiveRecord 2.3.8 I'd like to do:

    AnyModel.connection.create_table( 'temp_any_model', temporary: true, id: false, options: 'like any_model' )

But AR insists on adding "()" to the generated SQL even though the field list is blank since the table DDL is being cloned, thus resulting in e.g.:

    ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: Mysql::Error: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ') like any_model' at line 1: 
    CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE `temp_any_model` () like any_model

It should not generate the '()' if the field list is empty.

    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.
