Asking about object databases and active record


#1

why is it that mysql a relational database is the preferred database
among rubyists and not an object orientated database (even a free object
orientated database)?

what is the important missing piece… i mean if you are using a object
orientated
programming language (and active record) why not the same for a database
system (to be consistent)? …isn’t simplier?

I wasn’t aware we had a preferred database. Maybe you meant among Rails
users? In which case this might be a good question to ask the Rails
group.

Austin Z. addressed this quite well in a post on 2/16/07 in a
thread titled “object databases in Ruby?”.
