This morning, I took a snapshot of a production, Ruby on Rails database (via rake db:dump), and then applied the production / schema data to other environments.
- Database is Oracle 11
- Application server runs Redhat Enterprise Linux
Assumptions and challenges:
- The Development and QA (Quality Assurance) instances are probably not at the same software revisions or migration version numbers. So... keep that in mind.

I have a rake task "db:update_last_status", which I need to have run on remote servers, nightly, to update cached status fields - which are used for fast search capabilities in an RoR application. The RoR application runs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, an an Oracle database. It would be simple to script that with Cron, but that doesn't lend itself to monitoring or work within the enterprise standards. Capistrano works great, but also isn't within the Enterprise standards.

Back to seeding databases. My previous database seeding post addressed seeing with SQLite. This time, I'm using Oracle 11g as the back-end database, with the Oracle-Enhanced ActivieRecord adapter.

I'm the process of upgrading from Coeus 4.3.7 to version 4.4.3. Coeus version 4.4 now uses Apache FOP 0.93. This is a major upgrade from FOP 0.20.x. Coeus uses FOP transform data into reports, through the use of XML and XSL. I've performed the same upgrade for another client, several years back, in an dental-insurance application that managed / generated benefit documents. Due to the changes in FOP, it is necessary to rework some of the Customized reports (expressed as XSL).
These elements rendered fine in Apache FOP 0.20.x, but are show-stoppers in FOP 0.93 and later.

Formtastic is a powerful form library for Ruby on Rails. The documentation and tutorials I've read describe using it for the New and Edit actions, for an ActiveRecord, CRUD controller. However, ... wouldn't it be useful to re-use the same Formtastic partials the controller's Show action?
