I've read many of the existing questions/threads on this subject, but
keep in mind that none of them have directly addressed my issue -- or
they have yet to be answered. Also keep in mind that this is NOT a
situation for database.yml as I won't know the DB info in advance.
That said, I need a solution for DYNAMICALLY connecting to multiple
databases in a Rails app. My situation is that I have multiple data
logging sites, all with a simple data table (EVENTS, TIMESTAMP,
VALUE). These sites need to (and will) remain as they are due to local
applications that need to use them.
What I need is to create an application that maintains a table of
"MYSQL_LOGINS" and uses each of those logins to connect to any one of
various databases and provide charts/graphs for the data therein.
My "data" model will remain the same for all MySQL databases to which
I connect, I simply need to be able to tell my MODEL to connect to a
different DB on the fly. I'm hoping this is amazingly simple, but
