Problem with exists? method

Hi,

I have a DB with table TABLENAME, column COLUMN and an active resource
client trying to connect to the DB. When i do

Tablename.find(:all) => i get all the entries from the table
But Tablename.exists?(:column => value) always returns false
I verified that the above command works from rails console. Dont
understand why it always returns false even when there are valid
records.

And in the rails server terminal i see a request for this cmd failing as

Started HEAD "/tablenames/columnnamevalue.json" for 127.0.0.1 at Mon Jun

Could you point me to some documentation for exists? that shows
passing a column value other than an id? I cannot find any reference
to that.

Im sorry i have looked at wrong documentation. I have to use find(:all,
:params)

http://apidock.com/rails/ActiveRecord/FinderMethods/exists%3F

has various forms exists? accepts

Hi Frederick,

Activeresource exists doesnt support conditions i think . Even i got
confused by activerecord and activeresource exists method.
