Thanks for the reply. There is a JDBC driver available for UniVerse,
though I haven’t been able to get my hands on it yet. Another option
is to do screen scraping under telnet but I’m not crazy about that
I’m willing to split off the whole application to isolate the
ActiveRecord parts (and a web service API) into JRuby and use the web
service to get the real app server talking to the JRuby portion.
Are ActiveRecord and ActionWebService working well under JRuby? I
don’t care about the rest of Rails, just those two pieces working
from within a controller will be OK for me.
Some background. I’m fetching a bank account balance to supply to a
RoR app that will use Asterisk and a text to speech engine to speak
that balance back to the user, so performance wise, it has to happen
during the phone call. Performance is not too much of a problem for
me, since I’m fetching only one record at a time on demand. One extra
second won’t kill me But it needs to work each time, no crashes.
I’ll take a look at the ActiveRecord -> JDBC bridge. Again, thanks!!!
