With the advent of our new jruby.org blog comes a new software release. Our JDBC-based adapter for ActiveRecord is now compatible with the Rails 3.1 release. AR-JDBC is also tested to be compatible with 2.3.x and 3.0.x.
Install it as usual with
gem install activerecord-jdbc-adapter.
A new and notable feature of Rails 3.1 is that support for AR-JDBC is built-in. So when you generate a new Rails application with JRuby, your Gemfile will be set up automatically for use with JRuby and AR-JDBC. The
rails new command:
rails new photoblog -d mysql
creates the following section of the
So, no more
-m http://jruby.org, no more
rails generate jdbc, nothing. JRuby on Rails works out of the box.
I also want to take a moment to welcome Anthony Juckel, Arun Agrawal, Guillermo Iguaran, Matt Kirk, Luca Simone, and Samuel Kadolph for stepping up to the plate to help maintain AR-JDBC going forward. Thanks everyone!
