Dtabase access with Ruby

Hi
If myb doubt is a stupidity please forgive…I was reading a ruby
book as part of learning Ruby and I reached heading accessing database
with Ruby I have installed and running rails project…In the book it
says two methoda to connect a ruby program to database .
Ruby/DBI and
Ruby/odbc
And for the sample program one require “dbi” and other require “odbc”
I tried both these but getting no file to load? So my doubt is if these
are the two methods for accessing database from Ruby how could I access
database without anyof these two in Rails ?Is rails strategy differnet?
I did not understand That is why asking Could you please explain with a
simple code fragment to how a simple ruby program can be connected to
the database I am using postgres And another doubt is if I install dbi
will there any conflict with existing rails functionality?

Thanks in advance

shouldn’t be a conflict
I know you can find some postgres rails examples [google “postgres
rails”] however I did’t see any easy links out there to how to just use
the postgres gem by itself [no rails].
Cheers.

You can use ActiveRecord without rails. Also, a few other ORM
projects are out there, one of them being the Sequel gem.

Here’s one:

For more, just Google “activerecord without rails”.

Though if you aren’t using Rails, you may want to look at other ORMs:
I personally like Sequel, but there are other alternatives.
