Run sql query?

hi i’ve got one action which i want it to perform a sql update query.

how can i just run a sql query within my rails app?

e.g.

def
@sql = “update … from mytable”
execute @sql
redirect_to :action => ‘list’
end

any ideas?

don’t worry, worked it out…

I’ve done it two ways:

  1. Model.connection.execute(sql)

and

  1. ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute(sql)

Not sure which way is considered more proper, though.

Peace,

nice, i’ll have a look at that, thanks.
