A quick introduction: I was previously a member of Wayne K.'s
Ruby.NET team, and I am now looking forward to making a contribution to
the IronRuby community. I have recently been looking into what is
involved with database API support in IronRuby. Our current thinking is
that it might make sense to implement our database support in pure
(Iron)Ruby, using CLR interop to connect to various databases using
ADO.NET. The email below discusses SQLite3 support using this approach -
the attached zip file contains a quick and dirty prototype.
