It has been tested with Jruby 1.1, rails 2.0.2 and activerecord-jdbc-adapter.
I supose you have jruby installed, then install rails and activerecord-jdbc-adapter
# gem install rails activerecord-jdbc-adapter
Then copy Firebird-jdbc-adapter.jar into $JRUBY_HOME/lib
Configure your rails application database.yaml like that:
development: adapter: jdbc username: sysdba password: masterkey driver: org.firebirdsql.jdbc.FBDriver url: jdbc:firebirdsql:localhost/3050:database.fdb
NOTE: database.fdb is an alias. In order to setup an alias you have to config aliases.conf located on your firebird configuration folder and do something like that:
# /etc/firebird2/aliases.conf database.fdb = /databases/myblog/myblog.fdb
That’s all you need to work with firebird and rails.
