Tips for active record without rails

Hello there all,
i have used rails to build our company website, and i loved it.
i have a lot of maintenace scripts to run through cron and i would
really
dig being able to do it with active record.

Does anyone know of some good helper docs out there or tutorials ( or
even a
book ) that would allow me to get the hang of using active record
without
rails ?
or is there a better orm for mysql without being tied to a web server ?
thanks

I just created some simple documentation on this in the last week.
You can find it at http://www.ociweb.com/mark/ActiveRecord.html. This
page also discusses using ActiveRecord from Java through JRuby.

I’m open to any feedback on this page!

I’ve read this book:

http://www.pragmaticprogrammer.com/titles/fr_eir/index.html

It covers the scenario you describe in fair detail.

ActiveRecord outside of Rails is stunningly easy, especially when
you already have all of your Rails models written. I always end up
writing tons of ruby scripts that populate my Rails database with
loads of test or demo data.

One of the most compelling reasons to use JRuby IMO; getting access
to all of those databases through JDBC that you don’t have Ruby adapters
for.

way cool, thanks for this, looks like a lot of what i am after.
