Description (last modified by Karen Tracey)

  • Description: Django requires the exception to have "message" attribute, but some errors don't. The real error is hidden and difficult to get.
  • How to reproduce:
    • install cx_Oracle: sudo easy_install cx_Oracle #requires python-setuptools
    • in your, use:
            * DATABASE_ENGINE = 'oracle'
            * DATABASE_NAME = 'XE'  # your dbname here
            * DATABASE_USER = 'testuser' # your user here
            * DATABASE_PASSWORD = 'password' # your password here
            * DATABASE_HOST = 'localhost'    # your db host
            * DATABASE_PORT = ''       # leave empty if default port 1521 
            * DEFAULT_TABLESPACE = 'NONEXISTING'  # use some invalid tablespace
            * DEFAULT_INDEX_TABLESPACE = 'NONEXISTING' # here also
    • with an empty database, run syncdb: ./manage syncdb

The patch is not valid. It was made against trunk, but trunk does work correctly.
