=SQL Anywhere ActiveRecord Driver
This is a SQL Anywhere driver for Ruby ActiveRecord. This driver requires the
native SQL Anywhere Ruby driver. To get the native driver, use:
gem install sqlanywhere
This driver is designed for use with ActiveRecord 3.0.3 and greater.
This driver is licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.
==Making a Connection
The following code is a sample database configuration object.
ActiveRecord::Base.configurations = {
'arunit' => {
:adapter => 'sqlanywhere',
:database => 'arunit', #equivalent to the "DatabaseName" parameter
:server => 'arunit', #equivalent to the "ServerName" parameter
:username => 'dba', #equivalent to the "UserID" parameter
:password => 'sql', #equivalent to the "Password" parameter
:encoding => 'Windows-1252', #equivalent to the "CharSet" parameter
:commlinks => 'TCPIP()', #equivalent to the "Commlinks" parameter
:connection_name => 'Rails' #equivalent to the "ConnectionName" parameter
}
==Running the ActiveRecord Unit Test Suite
1. Open <tt><ACTIVERECORD_INSTALL_DIR>/rakefile</tt> and modify the line:
for adapter in %w( mysql postgresql sqlite sqlite3 firebird db2 oracle sybase openbase frontbase )
to include <tt>sqlanywhere</tt>. It should now look like:
for adapter in %w( mysql postgresql sqlite sqlite3 firebird db2 oracle sybase openbase frontbase sqlanywhere )
2. Create directory to hold the connection definition:
mkdir <ACTIVERECORD_INSTALL_DIR>/test/connections/native_sqlanywhere
3. Copy <tt>test/connection.rb</tt> into the newly created directory.
4. Create the two test databases. These can be created in any directory.
dbinit -c arunit
dbinit -c arunit2
dbsrv11 arunit arunit2
