ID of adapter in migrations


#1

Rails 2.3

How does one identify the adapter that a migration is using? I have
some SQL code that only applies if the postgresql adapter is involved
and I wish to put my execute method inside a suitable conditional.
However, I cannot see a way to get this information from an instance of
ActiveRecord::Migration. Nonetheless, some means must exist for
migrations to work.

How do I ID the DBMS adapter that the migration is using?

You could check the class of ActiveRecord::Base.connection

if ActiveRecord::Base.configurations[RAILS_ENV][“adapter”] == “mysql”

etc.
