Informix adapter for Ruby on Rails


#1

We can now use Informix as back-end for our Rails applications. Here’s
the code of the adapter:

http://rubyforge.org/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/rails-informix/?root=rails-informix

It has been tested succesfully on Solaris 9/Informix 9.40/Rails 1.0.0.

Since Informix doesn’t allow quoting a value for a [CB]LOB in a query,
I had to override some methods of ActiveRecord::Base to accept a
parameter list and a parameterized query.

Testers and comments are welcome.

P.S. It’s based on the native Informix driver for Ruby:
