I was wondering if there is a way how to do Rails Engines (as bound contexts) where each engine would have it’s own (ActiveRecord) database.
Referring to article https://medium.com/@dan_manges/the-modular-monolith-rails-architecture-fb1023826fc4
Imagine every bound context (Rails engine) would have own DB (like microservices has)
Online store app
product listing - own postgres DB
orders - own postgres DB
basket - own postgres DB
I know that this could teoretically be done on model level:
module YourEngine class Post < ActiveRecord::Base establish_connection :adapter => 'sqlite3', :database => 'db/your_engine.sqlite3' end end
But is there anything like
my_engine/config/database.yml ==> own ActiveRecord database setup for every engine ?
I’m purely just investigating the possibilities for a talk don’t really want to implement something like that
