#12558 closed (fixed)

The ENGINE setting no longer defaults to dummy if it is not defined

Reported by: obeattie Owned by: nobody
Component: Database layer (models, ORM) Version: 1.2-alpha
Severity: Keywords: importerror
Cc: Triage Stage: Unreviewed
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: UI/UX:


If the ENGINE setting is not defined in a project's file (for instance, if not using Django's ORM), any attempt to import django.db will cause an ImportError due to the new ConnectionHandler trying to import an invalid path. I have attached a patch which hopefully corrects this behaviour.

+1, just had exactly the same problem - you shouldn't need to define databases if you're not using the ORM. Came up with exactly the same patch, does the trick.
