Sample code for ODBC


#1

Hi,

I use Rails on windows.

Is there any sample that explains how to setup rails for connecting to
an
ODBC data source?

Thank you,
Alan

While there is a Ruby ODBC driver, for some reason there’s never been
the demand for creating a Rails adapter - at least, not that I’m aware
of. There have been times when I’ve wished for one, but it turned out
that dumping the data across to MySQL was all that was needed for me…

While I sympathise with your sentiment, it’s a reasonable question. The
wiki page doesn’t mention a Rails adapter, nor does the last link on the
wiki page.

I did my homework and I knew about that link.

The problem that I cannot figureout is that we already have ODBC
connectivity in ruby installation at this location:

C:\ruby\lib\ruby\site_ruby\1.8\DBD\ODBC

Why do we need to install ruby-odbc-0.997.tar.tar again?
