RailsConf talk: Rails Legacy DB Schemas with iBatis for Ruby - Badrinath Janakiraman

iBatis

  • Do not use this Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tool.
  • Okay, use this ORM tool if you absolutely cannot accomplish what you need to with ActiveRecord.
  • It allows/forces you to manually create the sql that you need to get the objects that fit into your domain model.

Yeah, I didn’t get too much out of this talk. I probably don’t really ever want to use iBatis all that much.
