Issue #3096 invalid

Misnamed datetime attributes in mysql/base.py

Tara Andrews
created an issue

Using SQLAlchemy with a DateTime column on MySQL gives me the following stack trace:

...which makes sense, as indeed the attribute is called 'microsecond' and, on the following line, it should be 'second' rather than 'seconds'. Here is the very simple patch:

    this is highly unusual because that code is handling a datetime.timedelta() object, not a datetime.time(). I've just added this test case:

    so, this is not making much sense how you're getting a datetime in there. What database, Python version, DBAPI in use? Special datatypes in play here?

    I am getting the same error when trying to use aldjemy or django-sabridge packages and querying using Session. (I am trying to integrate django with sqla)

    How about a patch that will check if the instance is of datetime.time and if so, will just return the datetime.time object ?

    I am using MySQL-python==1.2.5

    on this end, the best I could do would be to catch AttributeError, and then do the check and just raise an error that's descriptive. because first off we try very hard not to put isinstance() into a data conversion function and secondly because the datatype should be used correctly in the first place.
