^ Calling JDBC from with Ruby
93321 [mdavis sevas] I am building a web application for a client in Ruby.  The application is working but now needs to access data using JDBC.  My client is requiring both ODBC (for Windows) and JDBC (for Sun) access to data.  I am looking for an example of how to use JDBC from within Ruby.  I have looked at Jruby but would prefer to write my own code rather than rely on a third party add-on that is beta, especially one that has not been updated in a while.  If I write the data access portion in Java that uses JDBC, can I then write a Java wrapper that would allow Ruby to call the Java methods?  Are there any examples available showing how to call a Java method from within Ruby similar to the C interface to Ruby?
+ 93331 [gsinclair so] If I may go out on a limb here, I've never heard anything so

  93467 [mdavis sevas] No.  The data that I need to access may not always be relational and I have been given specific requirements for using both JDBC and ODBC.  I explored many possible options for accessing data with my client and they have several very good reasons for these requirements.

  + 93475 [dhtapp cox.n] {snip...}
  | 93478 [mdavis sevas] Thanks.  I offered the original question because I am also unclear about what choices I have.  Having a separate Java process running that my Ruby application would talk too for JDBC access is worth considering, however, I am concerned about my clients willingness to supporting an additional process that must always be running.
  | + 93480 [rasputnik he] Yuk.

  |   93501 [mdavis sevas] I trust you are referring to DBI's ability to use ODBC in Windows.  I am aware of this and if my requirement were to only to access data using ODBC on Windows, I would strongly consider using DBI.  However, this does not address my need to access data using JDBC in a unix environment.
