Unexpected CAS error:

Expected output from:

cb.default_format = :document
cb.set("trans1", "{'karen': '400', 'dipti': '800', 'status':'init' }")=> 360287970189639680
cb.cas("trans1") do |val|
val["new"] = "new"

Would be {'karen': '400', 'dipti': '800', 'status':'init', 'new': 'new' }

but it returns:

IndexError: string not matched
from (irb):7:in `[]='

This is based on the rdoc example:

c.default_format = :document
c.set("foo", {"bar" => 1})
c.cas("foo") do |val|
  val["baz"] = 2
c.get("foo") #=> {"bar" => 1, "baz" => 2}

It isn't bug here

Note what are you setting as document:

   "{'karen': '400', 'dipti': '800', 'status':'init' }"

This is a String, so it will be encoded as JSON string.

If you'd like to store a JSON Object, you should use Ruby Hash:

   {'karen' => '400', 'dipti' => '800', 'status' => 'init' }

I guess '400' and '800' shouldn't be specified as strings, therefore you might want to omit single quotes

Also note that quoting JSON with ' is actually not legal. It's supposed to be " . Some JSON parsers (particularly some Python libraries) are really lax about this, but what you have there isn't JSON. It's a semi-JSON like string.

See json.org

I will add this last point to the section on Using JSON docs in the Structuring Data chapter of dev. guide....
