Add a native JSON data type support in MySQL #21110
Several changes were made in #21110 which I am strongly opposed to. (this is what I get for going on vacation. ) No type should be introduced into the generic `ActiveRecord::Type` namespace, and *certainly* should not be registered into the registry unconstrained unless it is supported by *all* adapters (which basically means that it was specified in the ANSI SQL standard). I do not think `# :nodoc:` ing the type is sufficient, as it still makes the code of Rails itself very unclear as to what the role of that class is. While I would argue that this shouldn't even be a super class, and that MySql and PG's JSON types are only superficially duplicated (they might look the same but will change for different reasons in the future). However, I don't feel strongly enough about it as a point of contention (and the biggest cost of harming the blameability has already occured), so I simply moved the superclass into a namespace where its role is absolutely clear. After this change, `attribute :foo, :json` will once again work with MySQL and PG, but not with Sqlite3 or any third party adapters. Unresolved questions -------------------- The types that and adapter publishes (at least those are unique to that adapter, and not adding additional behavior like `MysqlString` should probably be part of the adapter's public API. Should we standardize the namespace for these, and document them?
No. Like stated in our maintenance policy, new features are no applied to
