Ruby connectivity options for Firebird

FireRuby Multiplatform

FireRuby is an open source extension for the Ruby programming language that provides access the the Firebird open source RDBMS. The FireRuby library was written as a C extension to Ruby but no compilation is necessary as binary versions are provided for the Windows, Linux and Mac OS X operating systems. This driver is NOT in active development since 2007.

Rubyfb Other

The primary goal of the Rubyfb project is to provide Firebird connectivity for the Ruby on Rails environment (active record adapter for Firebird database).

The project consists of two parts - the Rubyfb library it self and the adapter code. While the primary goal is the Firebird support in RoR, the Rubyfb library is kept separated, allowing standalone use and has no RoR dependencies.

Rubyfb library is a fork of the apparently abandoned FireRuby project.
