Progress OpenEdge and rails

Hi everyone,

I am starting a new project and the back-end database is a Progress
OpenEdge db.
Has anyone used ruby/rails with such a database. Are there any drivers
that i can use to connect to OpenEdge?

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you

Hi

Oh gosh , where to begin!!! The long and short of it is I have been
trying for months to get it to work on Linux. I managed to get it to
work on Windows with instant rails and the merant driver but its
sllllloooow. Openedge comes up "Unsupported database " on linux but
Progress 9.1E on linux has a chance if you can recompile the gcc lib
file for the 9.1E merant driver. (Very very difficult as the gcc lib
is the backbone of linux)

So far I have had little or no sucess and I think the answer is to try
Jruby with the JDBC connection … but good luck with that . I tried it
and its just as bad… Java has all its nice littel quirks like
JAVA_PATH ect etc

Sorry must get my facts right . its glib not gcc thats the problem .

Have a look here of the windows/linux how to but like I said it only
worked for me with windows

http://odbc-rails.rubyforge.org/

Thanks,

I got it to work on windows … but man this is slowwwwww …

I have a database on an OpenEdge 10.1C enviroment (hosted on a IBM UNIX
box).

I am developing on a windows machine. Can you please advise how to
connect to the openedge db; do i need to install a odbc driver?
I installed the odbc-rails gem (following the steps described on the
link you provided) and now i am stuck on what driver to use to create
the dsn

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you
