Hey all I have been contemplating if it is possible to use ActiveRecord in a RubyCocoa application? Has anyone tried it? is it even possible? All the best Tim Perrett

Of course it's possible, ActiveRecord ist just a normal Ruby library. You could even try to write an ActiveRecord database adapter for CoreData.

Sounds sweet. I see what you mean, i managed to get in there by doing a simple require! should have thought of that. One thing im not quite sure about however, is how would i then handle that connection within the application? I obviously create my connection with ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection( :adapter => "mysql", :host => "localhost", :username => "myuser", :password => "mypass", :database => "somedatabase" ) For instance, in rails, how is it that we can then call SomeModel.find(:all) in our controller and it does not throw an error? I know its to do with the load path, but does the same apply here? Does it create a persistant connection to the database for the lifetime of the application or do i need to call the connection from AR::Base when i need it? Cheers Tim PS: sorry if this seems like dull questions im just getting into the RubyCocoa thing!

Hey Tim, Just wanted to point you to the new RubyCocoa Wiki, which has some info about the new ActiveRecord support in RubyCocoa. http://rubycocoa.sourceforge.net/Wikka/wikka.php?w... Cheers, Eloy
