I have been to my first RubyConf in Cincinnati, OH. I'd like to share two ActiveRecord topics there.
- ActiveRecord JDBC Adapter
JRuby Everywhere! Server, Client, and Embedded
They announced ActiveRecord JDBC Adapter reboot. Removing a lot of duplicate code with ActiveRecord, focusing on supporting 3 major databases - SQLite, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.
Yes. reboot also includes dropping Oracle database support.
To reduce maintenance load, the rebooted activerecord-jdbc will drop Oracle support. Use the excellent "oracle_enhanced" adapter instead.— Charles Nutter (@headius) 2016年11月13日
I agree with their decision and would like to support users who need to migrate from AR JDBC to Oracle enhanced adapter.
- Oracle Enhanced adapter 1.7.6
Attending a conference is also a good chance to meet with great developers. This time I was lucky enough to have a chance to talk with Sean Grifin who is contributing ActiveRecord. Thanks to his advice I was able to release Oracle enhanced adapter 1.7.6, supporting boolean attribute for any varchar2 column length.
I'm glad to annouhce that the new version of Oracle enhanced adapter has been released at RubyConf 2016 in Cincinnati. https://t.co/YHFjCmpPnh— Yasuo Honda (@yahonda) 2016年11月12日
