Hiya RoR gurus,

I work at a .NET shop, but I enjoy learning Ruby.  So, I wanna
prototype some of our company's screens using Rails (and hopefullly
AJAX).  One thing I'm not sure about, since I'm a noob, is whether
ActiveRecord will get along with our database...

So I have two questions:
  * Can I have ActiveRecord get along with our PascalCase naming

  * We ALWAYS have two fields as our primary key: Id and EffectiveYear,
which is an integer containing a year and a version, ie 200600000,
200600001, ...   This is a strict requirement, so can I get
ActiveRecord to do this (easily)?

Thanks in advance,

Please email me if anyone answers this!!
