Subject firebird and ruby on rails..
Author langleydeveloper
I'm evaluating a commercial Rails application for use against a
Firebird (ver 1.5.3) database. The application throws segmentation
faults when run against Firebird vs. Mysql; also, the Rails unit tests
throw segmentation faults (for me) against Firebird. However, my own
small test projects in Ruby (using FireRuby) and in Rails (using the
Firebird adapter that ships with Rails) run flawlessly. Are segfaults
with Firebird and Rails a problem that other people are facing?
Alternatively, is there anyone that is currently using Rails and
Firebird successfully in a complex, high-volume application?

BTW, I love how Firebird delivers sophistication and performance in a
beautifully simple package!
