I wanted to announce that ActiveRecord Oracle enhanced adapter
(which initially was fork of original Oracle adapter for MRI) now also
works on JRuby / JDBC as well as on Ruby 1.9.1 -
Why Oracle enhanced adapter might be better alternative to standard JDBC
adapter for JRuby on Rails on Oracle applications?
- It wil be less risky to develop application on one platform (e.g. MRI
Ruby/YARV 1.9) and deploy on another (e.g. JRuby) as you will use the
adapter which generates the same SQL statements
- Oracle enhanced adapter has many additional features (http:// that are especially
using Rails on top of legacy Oracle database schemas
- Oracle enhanced adapter is passing all ActiveRecord unit tests (after
patching of them to disable tests that generate Oracle incompatible SQL)
- It is written just in Ruby and is specialized just for Oracle
and therefore will be easier to understand in case of troubleshooting :)

Please try it out and give your feedback either here or at Oracle
adapter discussion group
