How Do I Access Databases From My JRuby Rails Project?
By divas on Jul 07, 2008
Over the last year, as I wrote and updated the Ruby tutorials, I end up with many different versions of the Rails applications, where each is based on a different version of JRuby. I often test with both Ruby and JRuby, and I try to test them using different database servers. Rather than follow a tutorial from scratch to get a working version for my current configuration, I wanted to learn how to easily take an application and change it to work with a different database configuration. For example, how can I take an application that I developed using the native Ruby interpreter, and make it work using the JRuby interpreter, or take an MySQL application and use it with a PostgreSQL server. As I researched the history of JRuby access to databases, I compiled my notes into a FAQ, which I posted to wiki.netbeans.org/FaqRailsJRubyDatabaseAccess.
Hopefully, you will find it helpful. If not, post a comment as to what other information you would like to see, or let me know when the instructions don't work. Even better, you can correct the FAQ itself if you have joined the NetBeans community.
