All,

http://ironruby.net/Documentation/Rails has been updated to show instructions for running Rails 2.3.5 on IronRuby, including using the official activerecord-sqlserver-adapter (v2.3). Thanks to Ivan for his work on ironruby-dbi!

The steps are extrememly simple now. Assuming you have IronRuby installed and a Rails app you'd like to run on IronRuby:

1. Install Rake, Rails, and IronRuby SQLServer

igem install rake rails ironruby-sqlserver

2. Add the following to the top of your app's config/environment.rb:

require 'rubygems' 
require 'ironruby_sqlserver'

3. Connect to SQLServer in config/database.yml:

development:
  mode: ADONET
  adapter: sqlserver
  host: YOURMACHINENAME\SQLEXPRESS
  database: app123_development
  integrated_security: true

4. Migrate the database and start the server:

irake db:migrate
ir script\server

And that's it! The documentation link above also has a walk through setting up IronRuby, Rails, and SQLServer, and shows a basic Rails "scaffold" running.

Coming soon are updated instructions for running rack-based web applications in IIS on IronRuby.

Let me know if you have any questions,
~Jimmy
