Dear all,

I have created a test file like,

<code>

require 'product'

product = Product.new('aaaa aaa', 'uuuu')

 </code>

I have passed two strings while initializing an object

now in actual product class file

<code>

class Product

  attr_accessor :name
  protected :name

  attr_accessor :description
  protected :description

  attr_accessor :categories
  protected :categories

  def initialize( *args )

   # extract the attributes from the given arguments

    attributes = args.last.is_a?( ::Hash ) ? args.pop : {}

    # initialize attributes

    @name = attributes[ :name ] || String.new
    @description = attributes[ :description ] || String.new
    @categories = attributes[ :description ] || Array.new

  end


end

</code>

i have to used the arguments passed and get processed but i was not able
to retrieve string using above initialize method. please suggest a way
to proceed further.

while testing iam getting only blank space for @name, @description,
@categories.

please suggest a way so that ican read my arguments in product class
using above same initialize method.

thanks in advance

Regards,
Jose martin
