I have a MySQL database that I use with my Rails application. I
attempted to use "rake db:test:prepare" to create a test database. (Very
cool, feature, by the way.) I then get the error
You have a nil object when you didn't expect it!
You might have expected an instance of Array.
The error occured while evaluating nil.
After some search I learned that the schema dump cannot handle e.g. enum
columns. There is an old ticket #2379 about it but it seems not to have
been implemented in 2.0. ( I am using a Imac and textmate)
I also found another solution
(http://snippets.dzone.com/posts/show/2031) using a rake file that I
called test_prepare.rake and put in lib/tasks/test_prepare.rake, but
when I used the rake command I got the message
Don't know how to build task 'test_prepare'
The question is now how to create a test database??
When I tried just to use the development database it complained about
that there was no test database configured. I tried several other rake
commands but they all complained about the nil object or missing
How to go on with the testing ??? Thanks in advance. /Hans
