error_handler does not work with python 2.3 [decorator()] syntax

Reported by: corvus Owned by: alberto
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.0.x bugfix
Component: TurboGears Version: 1.0
Severity: normal Keywords: decorator errorhandling


The python 2.3 pseudo-decorator syntax does not work with error_handler. The code:

    def search(self, address=''):
        return dict(form=search_form)

produces the error:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/TurboGears-1.0-py2.3.egg/turbogears/controllers.py", line 173, in validate
    return errorhandling.run_with_errors(errors, func, *args, **kw)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/TurboGears-1.0-py2.3.egg/turbogears/errorhandling.py", line 110, in run_with_errors
    raise NotImplementedError("Method %s.%s() has no applicable "
NotImplementedError: Method Root.search() has no applicable error handler.

But adding the more normal python 2.3 validator syntax:


works. In both cases the signature for index is:

    def index(self, address='', tg_errors=None):

I think, this is more a documentation issue. If there is an easy workaround/alternative, why bother to fix it?

In TG 1.1 we won't support Python 2.3 any more, anyway.

My suggestion would be to retarget this to TG 1.0.x and make it a documentation issue.

  • Keywords decorator errorhandling added
  • Milestone changed from 1.1 to 1.0.x bugfix

Retargeted to TG 1.0. This really needs to be fixed or documented in 1.0 only. With the Py 2.4 it works, and TG 1.1 support only Py >= 2.4.

I added a note about Python 2.3 compatibility to the  error_handler documentation.

Can we close this ticket now? There is a workaround and RuleDispatch is replaced in TG 1.1 so I don't think it's worth the effort fixing the cause of this problem.

Agreed, closing this now.
