Typical enterprises use dozens, hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of applications, components, services, and databases. These run on heterogeneous operating systems and hardware, they use databases and messaging systems from various vendors, and they were written in different programming languages. And it's your job to make them work together. This book shows you how the power and elegance of Ruby can greatly simplify your job. Use it as a glue language to bind your enterprise applications using technologies including - Oracle, MySQL, and friends: use relational databases directly, and via mapping layers such as ActiveRecord; LDAP: Harness the power of directory services; XML Documents: create, validate, and read XML documents for easy information interchange; Sockets, HTTP, and REST: sometimes the low-level communications protocols are the simplest way to get things moving; and, XML-RPC, SOAP, CORBA, RMI and others: and sometimes you need the high-level protocols to get the job done. This isn't a book full of theory. Maik builds real life applications to illustrate all the techniques and technologies.It isn't a love fest either: Maik isn't afraid to point out the weaknesses in the approaches and in the libraries he's describing.

Like most books that develop a continually growing sample application, this book is best read end-to-end. However each section can be read on it's own, allowing the reader to skip to the section most relevant at a given time. Each section has a very clearly defined purpose, and where possible Maik describes multiple ways of achieving a given goal, plus he explains potential pitfalls (all with a gentle humor and easy going style that makes this book a pleasure to read).
This is not a beginner's book - as identified on the back cover, and in the introductory text - you are expected to know some Ruby before attempting this book. However writing for a more skilled audience may be the reason for my only complaint: the assumption that the reader will be familiar with how to set up the environment(s) necessary to work through the examples. For example, there is no explanation of how to set up the Oracle tables or data - even a single sentence stating that SQL scripts could be found on the website would have made this a little more helpful. This is a very minor issue though, and unlikely to cause major problems for most readers.
This is a very good book, and one that I am likely to continually refer to for considerable time.
Programming Ruby. it explains in an very easy way how to use XML, SOAP, databases, LDAP and more with Ruby.
and there is a great chapter about rake.
the examples are easy to follow and the writing style is fun.
the book really shows what Ruby can do for your daily life as a programmer, but also shows where it still has it's limitations.
the author really knows his subject and I have found no
errors or typos in the book.
if you use Ruby, this book is highly recommended !!
