Who knows if i can have 2 databases in my app


#1

Please, i need help.

i wonder if rail allows to have 1 legacy database in informix and other
mysql database (no legacy) in the same application.

I need to query in the informix database and manipulate data to save in
mysql.

It is posible?? it it is, how? any guide? tutorial? link?

I’ll appreciate any help.

best regards.

Not tried it myself but there does appear to be a fair bit of
documentation - eg
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowtoUseMultipleDatabases

(top of the list for a google search on “rails multiple databases”)

Also, someone’s kindly done a rails-informix adapter for you :slight_smile:
