Camping in jRuby

Sometimes, you want to camp on the summit of jRuby. It has a great view.

The base gem

jgem install camping

For using views

jgem install markaby

For working with an Sqlite database

jgem install activerecord
jgem install activerecord-jdbcsqlite3-adapter

Using a database like that needs a little extra work. To avoid getting scary errors that say things like

LoadError at /
no such file to load — sqlite3

You’ll need to have the following line in your code:

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(:adapter => 'jdbcsqlite3', :database => "foo.sqlite3")</pre>
