Newbie question

I am trying to learn RoR and have a couple of misconceptions I’d like to
clear up for myself.

  1. One of the great things that are touted in every demo of RoR is the
    ability to add a new column to a table and it automagically appears on
    the web page. While this is nice and all, this doesn’t happen auto
    magically. It means that on every web request, the RoR framework must
    query the schema somehow. That’s convenient but it’ll bring a well
    trafficked site to its knees. Does this only happen in the Dev mode?

  2. All tutorials and examples use MySQL as the database. How does one
    access MSSQL or Sybase? Is there a standardized access technique?

Regards

You want to ask your questions on the Ruby on Rails mailing list.
