I know that use of components as a general purpose solution is discouraged. We have a specific piece of functionality that is perfect for them and we have been using them in that setup for some time with great success.
Testing on 1.2RC1, they are all broken (across several apps). The components no longer seem able to locate their view files.
We get this message:
"Missing template /opt/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-184.108.40.20618/lib/active_support/item_list/item_list/item_list.rhtml"
Each time they are called. The component view is in place (it hasn't moved) and this works fine when I revert to 1.1.6.
We do use the 'uses_component_template_root' method call in the controller for each component but even if I test removing that, I still have the same problem.
Has anyone else seen this problem? It seems as if components are broken entirely.
Any help is very much appreciated.
