Accessing Database Using IronRuby

Hi,

I am trying to find a way to access database (SQL SERVER) using
IronRuby. One option is to use C# and ADO.NET classes to access the
database but was wondering if IronRuby has a build in support for
dynamic SQL so I don’t have to deal with ADO.NET for database access.

You can use any OR/M in the .NET space to connect to databases.Writing
queries will be somewhat challenging though :slight_smile:

Jimmy also wrote a sql server adapter for activerecord that comes with
rails
so you could also use the rails OR/M ActiveRecord

http://github.com/jschementi/activerecord-mssql-adapter/tree/master

So you could use a ruby OR/M

You could use the ActiveRecord SQLServer adapter … Look for
documentation under the Rails section in ironruby.net/documentation.

Thanks! yeah I might be interested in using any .NET ORM!

I will try out Jimmy Rails ORM ActiveRecord. I think it will also work
for a windows application.

Let me check out the dbi module.

Hi Jimmy,

Can I use the ActiveRecord SQL SERVER with Window Forms projects?

Thanks! I’ve added this to the IronRuby .NET documentation just as a
placeholder:

http://ironruby.net/Documentation/.NET/SQL

Definitely, WinForms isn’t anything special to restrict using SQLServer.

I actually show this briefly here:
http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/2009/05/ironruby-at-railsconf-2009.html#sql

Source code is here:
http://github.com/jschementi/railsconf09/tree/master/8-ardb

~js

Just wanted to share basic code to insert first_name and last_name into
the database.

require ‘mscorlib’
require ‘System.Data, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089’

SqlConnection = System::Data::SqlClient::SqlConnection
SqlCommand = System::Data::SqlClient::SqlCommand

class CustomerRepository

def save(customer)

connection =
SqlConnection.new(‘Server=localhost;Database=TestDatabase;Trusted_Connection=true’)
connection.Open()
command = SqlCommand.new(“insert into customers(first_name,last_name)
values(@first_name,@last_name)”,connection)
command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@first_name",customer.first_name)
command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@last_name",customer.last_name)

command.ExecuteNonQuery()
connection.Close()

end

end

Thanks!

That code should use ‘ensure’, to make sure the connection is closed at
the
end of the block:
require ‘mscorlib’
require ‘System.Data, Version=2.0.0.0, Culture=neutral,
PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089’

include System::Data::SqlClient

begin
connection =
SqlConnection.new(‘Server=localhost;Database=TestDatabase;Trusted_Connection=true’)
connection.open
command = SqlCommand.new(<<-EOS
insert into customers(first_name,last_name)
values(@first_name,@last_name)
EOS, connection)
command.parameters.add_with_value “@first_name”, “Jimmy”
command.parameters.add_with_value “@last_name”, “Schementi”
command.execute_non_query
ensure
connection.close unless connection.nil?
end

Thanks, the change has been made.
