Hi, I'm trying to connect to an existing MS SQL database using Ruby. All
websites point me to using 'DBI' but there is a glitch mentioned about
ADO.rb that has to be separately downloaded. Everyone points me to
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=234&release_id=20222 but I can't find
any zip file here that has ADO.rb. Where is it?

Thank you.

Get a DBI 2.2 distro from there and it's included:

[16:44]jon:~/Downloads/dbi-0.2.2$ find . -name ADO.rb
./lib/dbd/ADO.rb

Thanks so much - I thought I was going nuts there for a moment. The
guides on this weren't very clear. I wonder why the latest version of
DBI doesn't include this file...

Does anyone know if ADO is being phased out or something? It took me
ages to
figure
out how to connect to SQL server with ActiveRecord. Is the old ADO fully
compatible
with the new DBI?
