DB2 and SQL Server Drivers


#1

Greetings,

I was wondering if anyone on this list has any experience using

Ruby/Rails with either DB2 or SQLServer. We’re currently in the later
planning stages of two RoR applications and I’m not 100% sure about the
state of these two drivers. Googling for this information locates
multiple sites that discuss various driver implementations (DBI, etc)
for both databases. However, I can’t really glean how realistic it is to
use RoR for an application that requires a DB2 (legacy) or SQLServer
datasource. Any information is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott

I use ActiveRecord with SQLServer. It is workable, although not entirely
without issues. Search for SqlServer at
http://dev.rubyonrails.org/report/1.
