Hardcoded "SET NAMES UTF8" in mysql_adapter.create_connection should be variable

Reported by Jan Molic | April 30th, 2008 @ 07:41 AM

There is hardcoded "SET NAMES UTF8" in MySQL adapter.create_connection(). I would prefer to set the encoding in database's setup:

DataMapper::Database.setup( {
  :adapter  => 'mysql',
  :host     => 'foo',
  :encoding => 'LATIN2'
} )

Now my workaround is this

def adapter.create_connection()
  conn = super()
  cmd = conn.create_command( "SET NAMES LATIN2" )

    • Milestone cleared.
    • Assigned user set to “Paul Sadauskas (Rando)”

    This is resolved in DO 0.9.0. Couldn't say for sure if it's reflected in the migrations though. I'll ask Rando or Ben on IRC.

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”

    Right, doesn't apply to the new migrations in dm-core.
