SQL Anywhere Ruby API support

There are three different Ruby APIs supported by SQL Anywhere. First, there is the SQL Anywhere Ruby API. This API provides a Ruby wrapping over the interface exposed by the SQL Anywhere C API. Second, there is support for ActiveRecord, an object-relational mapper popularized by being part of the Ruby on Rails web development framework. Third, there is support for Ruby DBI. SQL Anywhere provides a Ruby Database Driver (DBD) which can be used with DBI.

There are three separate packages available in the SQL Anywhere for Ruby project. The simplest way to install any of these packages is to use RubyGems. To obtain RubyGems, go to [external link] It is recommended that you install version 1.3.1 or later.
