[Ironruby-core] Updated Rails instructions

ironruby-sqlserver simple depends on ironruby-dbi, which replaces the built-in DBI module with one capable of working with ADO.NET, as well as activerecord-sqlserver-adapter. It also patches activerecord-sqlserver-adapter to allow connection through ADO.NET. So doing a gem install ironruby-sqlserver pulls down those two gems also, and wires everything up:

> igem install ironruby-sqlserver --no-rdoc --no-ri
Successfully installed ironruby-dbi-0.1.0
Successfully installed activerecord-sqlserver-adapter-2.3.0
Successfully installed ironruby-sqlserver-0.1.0
3 gems installed

In fact, your log below shows activerecord-sqlserver-adapter on the stack =)

For the connection issue, did you set your database.yml? As long as ir.exe is running as you, integrated security should be fine. From looking at your log, this should work (if you’re using sqlexpress, and you set up the database to use Windows authentication):

  mode: ADONET
  adapter: sqlserver
  database: ironruby_on_rails_dev
  integrated_security: true

Otherwise, you can set up a specific username and password for your database, and then specific the “username” and “password” in the database yml file.

I just noticed the instructions are using ironruby-sqlserver though you note in your email that you are supporting activerecord-sqlserver-adapter. Is ironruby-sqlserver a wrapper, or would you just need to swap your adapter?

I'm also running into other problems:
1) I verified that I have the correct access (unless rails needs access?), but irake db:migrate produces the following error:
2) Trying to open the environment settings from the default page for the Rails app produces this message:

Any help is appreciated. I'm stumped. And if anyone knows how to copy text from Console2, I would appreciate the tip.

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:

 mode: ADONET
 adapter: sqlserver
 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.
