Hi,

I intend to start a new project with the following architecture:

Server:
-------
- Postgresql database
- ActiveRecord
- Distributed Ruby Server

Client:
-------
- Distributed Ruby Client
- Qt/Ruby GUI


Drb is not really an "Application Server". Normally, you expect features like "Connection Pooling" from such a server, and much more.

Is it safe and robust, anyway, on an intranet composed of a hundred of client computers, to marshall all ActiveRecord objects through a simple drb server?

Has anyone done this already?

Your reactions are more than welcome!

Thanks
