Rails model objects do not compare with '==' under jRuby 1.7.1 #225

This is a weird problem - I don't know if it's related to neo4j or jRuby, but I thought I'd mention it here. Using neo4j.rb 2.2.0 and jRuby 1.7.1, I found that comparing 2 objects that represent the same node return false when comparing with '=='. However, when I switch to the old version of jRuby I was using, jRuby, it works. I am running jRuby in 1.9 mode with --1.9.

Basically, I was just doing a 'Person.first == Person.first', and it was true under, and false under 1.7.1 .

Any idea what's up? jRuby emulates Ruby 1.9.2, wherever jRuby 1.7.1 emulates Ruby 1.9.3. Could that be the problem?

I'm switching back to jRuby 1.6 for now, as comparing 2 different objects that represent the same node in the graph DB and getting a return value of 'true' just seems the right thing to do.



Hmm, really strange.
The implementation is here:
The above mixin is used to extend the Neo4j Node/Relationship Java classes

The Neo4j Rails models delegates to the Java Node and Relationship objects

Not sure when I will have to time to investigate this more. But I'm curious ...

@andreasronge andreasronge Fix for JRuby 1.7.1, closes #225
Use the neo4j-wrapper impl. of equal instead of the neo4j-core java equals

Thanks so much for fixing that
