RoR with Existing tables in database using Postgresql


I am new bee to Rais. I need to create a Rails application with existing database with several number of tables. When i came across web, I didn't find any fruitful ideas for developing application using existing tables. Everything i found was to create new database with Create, Edit, Insert feature. I need to create a application using existing postgresql database stuffed with tables where i have to provide view only permission to the user. Kinldy help me in this regard. I have 15 tables in my database which developed in postgresql. Advance thanx to my friends of RoR-Talk.

Haven't used them but I would check them out..
