How to install the Oracle adapter 

This has been asked many times on rails-talk mailing list, so I want to summarize:
    sudo gem install activerecord-oracle-adapter –source http://gems.rubyonrails.org

(Since ActiveRecord Oracle Adapter is moving to Rubyforge. “–source http://gems.rubyonrails.org” will be omitted )
or check it out from svn:
    svn co http://svn.rubyonrails.org/rails/adapters/oracle/lib/active_record/connection_adapters/

And note that the adapter name specified in config/database.yml should be “oracle”, “oci” is deprecated.

Additional Info

Oracle “enhanced” ActiveRecord adapter is a fork of Rails Oracle Adapter, contains useful additional methods for working with new and legacy Oracle databases from Rails.

Raimonds Simanovskis is "planning to create activerecord-oracle-enhanced-adapter where to put my monkey patches of original adapter". It’s a good news since Rails Oracle Adapter svn respository has been in silence for a few months.

This guy posted an idea "Oracle adapter for Ruby on Rails" on Oracle MIX 3 months ago, but seems that he didn’t get much response/support from Oracle, so he decided to run on his own.

Shall we give him a hand?

Update: He is not planning but doing it now,  see process at  http://github.com/rsim/oracle-enhanced/
