Drb / ActiveRecord as Application Server for Qt/Ruby client

Hi,

I intend to start a new project with the following architecture:

Server:

  • Postgresql database
  • ActiveRecord
  • Distributed Ruby Server

Client:

  • Distributed Ruby Client
  • Qt/Ruby GUI

Drb is not really an “Application Server”. Normally, you expect features
like “Connection Pooling” from such a server, and much more.

Is it safe and robust, anyway, on an intranet composed of a hundred of
client computers, to marshall all ActiveRecord objects through a simple
drb server?

Has anyone done this already?

Your reactions are more than welcome!

Thanks

If you are just gonna marshal the AR objects and send them across the
network, why even have a server / client architecture? Just stick the
AR code in the “Client” and let PostgreSQL worry about concurrency.
