Only book on the market to attack the topic of ActiveRecord, a key component of the Ruby on Rails framework, in such depth
Shows how to adapt ActiveRecord to existing databases, which is key to the continued growth of Ruby on Rails
Written by recognized experts from thoughtbot, Inc. and Falicon, Inc, experts who will promote the book from their websites, online, and in conference presentations
Pro ActiveRecord for Ruby helps you take advantage of the full power of your database engine from within your Ruby programs and Rails applications. ActiveRecord is an object-relational mapping library enabling you to interact with databases from both Ruby and Rails applications.
Because ActiveRecord is configured with default assumptions that mesh perfectly with the Rails framework, Rails developers often find they hardly need think about it at all. However, if you are developing in Ruby without Rails or just want to take advantage of database-specific features such as large objects and stored procedures, you need the in-depth knowledge of ActiveRecord found in this book.
In Pro ActiveRecord for Ruby, the authors walk you through every step from the basics of getting and installing the ActiveRecord library to working with legacy schema to using features specific to each of today's most popular database engines, including Oracle, MS SQL, and MySQL. You'll come to a deep understanding of ActiveRecord that will enable you to truly exploit all that Ruby, Rails, and your chosen database platform have to offer.
