I’m a newbie to Ruby and I was wondering if Ruby on Rails will work with
databases that has a ODBC/JDBC driver or does it ONLY work with the
databases that it list in it’s documentation?

Thanks

AFAIK only the ones listed in the docs, because each database server
needs a
small Ruby adapter written for it to handle the SQL differences between

I am also interested in this subject. Of particular interest to me is
using the Data Direct odbc connector to connect to a Progress database
on a unix server from a windows app.

I have also seen some imformation at
http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/New+database+adapter

If you make any progress on the subject please post.
