If I may go out on a limb here, I've never heard anything so
ridiculous.  I mean, that's clients for you, but isn't it sufficient
that the application should just "access data"?

Anyway, someone please prove me wrong, but you can't "access JDBC with
Ruby".  JDBC must be accessed through a JVM, so JRuby might be your
only hope.
