Hi all, please forgive me for such a newbie question, but I thought it
best to tap the wealth of experience here.
I’m a new Rails guy but I’m evaluating frameworks for use in an intranet
a back whose internal systems are Oracle on linux. For now all my data
be on a dedicated box but down the road I may need to make calls into
databases hosted on other machines, running sybase or Oracle to retrieve
data. I view this as an opportunity to push rails into a legacy
and show the staff there what it can do.
If I need to pull data in from outside tables on other machines, can I
define them in model, or skip the abstraction and just parse raw SQL
Can RoR integrate many external systems without expecting write access ?
[my box: oracle 10gi + apache2 + fastCGI + ROR] <—> [Oracle Enterprise
anybody have experience with this ? I don’t want to descend back into
I don’t have to, but python with another framework is also an option.
thanks, all, i truly appreciate it.
Also, anybody here from Toronto, I’d like to meet up sometime and work
projects together, and I need a mentor.
