Oracle enhanced adapter for ActiveRecord

DESCRIPTION:

REQUIREMENTS:

  • Latest version works (has been tested) with ActiveRecord version 2.3 and 3.0 (these are the same as Rails versions)

  • Can be used on the following Ruby platforms:

    • MRI - requires ruby-oci8 2.0 gem to connect to Oracle (2.0.4 or later recommended)

    • Ruby/YARV 1.9.2 - requires ruby-oci8 2.0 library to connect to Oracle

    • JRuby 1.5 - uses JDBC driver ojdbc14.jar to connect to Oracle (should be in JRUBY_HOME/lib or in Java class path)

  • Requires ruby-plsql gem to support custom create, update and delete methods (but can be used without ruby-plsql if this functionality is not needed)

INSTALL:

  • sudo

    gem install activerecord-oracle_enhanced-adapter

In addition install either ruby-oci8 (for MRI/YARV) or copy Oracle JDBC driver to $JRUBY_HOME/lib (for JRuby).
