    No one has yet written an MS Access interface driver for Rails.

      Hi,

      How does such interface driver looks like?

      To access to an MS-Access-DB, we can do something like DBI.connect(dbi:odbc:your_ms_access_conection). Programming in Rails means using OR-Mapping. What we are missing here is the OR-Mapping-Layer for Access, right? How does such OR-Mapping implementation looks like? Where can I get an example?

      thanks alot

    Take a look at http://blog.behindlogic.com/2007/07/msaccess-for-rails-heres-your-rough.html, it should do you the trick. It's somewhat rough, but it's been doing the job well so far.
