Sorry if this has been asked in the past, but the search function is still down... My scenario: For my research agency, I'm trying to download XML files from the National Weather Service (NWS) and import certain data into my SQL Server database. Normally, I would use .NET to do this, but I'm trying to find a Ruby solution. Question: Suppose I write a Ruby script to run every hour, collect the XML, parse, and upload to the database. Can/should I use ActiveRecord for this? I'm not even sure HOW this would work, let alone IF. I've been successful at AJAX-ifying the retrieval/display of the XML (using REXML), but the next step is to store some of the data in SQL Server. I would like to utilize my current YAML config file too. Any tips? Thanks, Chris

Search the wiki.rubyonrails.org for this... many good examples...

Mikkel, Thanks. Shortly after I posted, I found a wiki page describing it. Thanks for the reminder to check that wiki more often.
