Dear JRuby U.:
TUDBC will give you an easy and unified access to virtually any JDBC
in JRuby. Further more, the codes are fully compatible with Ruby and
IronRuby, so that you don’t need to change the codes when you switch
all three flavors of Ruby.
I would like to introduce the new exciting TUDBC (Truly Unified
Database Connectivity) to you, which brings both high performance and
high productivity to database access. Currently, it supports
4 programming languages with the same unified coding style for C#,
Java, PHP (including Quercus), and Ruby (including three flavors:
Ruby, IronRuby with ADO.NET, and JRuby with JDBC). There is plan to
expand to other programming languages, including C, C++, Perl, Python,
All major DBMSes: Access, DB2, Derby, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server,
plus text CSV and Excel spreadsheets.
Even though TUDBC works for multiple platforms, the performance is not
sacrificed because it is using a new paradigm and caching technique. One
performance comparison shows that it is close-to-the-best and the best
in various settings.
On the website (http://www.tudbc.org), you will find interactive live
demos and source codes for all 4 languages. There are also videos of
demos and tutorials, including one that shows you how you can use
TUDBC to create a simple web application in 2 minutes.
Please share this great news with your colleagues.
