Widget

I am very new to Ruby.

Is there a way to create a Windows Widget that resides on a desktop and
allows direct access to a database..

For instance

I can enter name and email on my desktop and hit submit. It will then be
directed to an existing database?

I am trying to create a email database with ease of use for the
consumer?

Thanks

This might get a better answer if it was posted on the Ruby forum. This
is the "Ruby on Rails" which is a little bit more specific.

I don't know about Windows as far as making something that sits on your
desktop that you can click and have it start up, etc. The rest of the
task of getting input and putting it into a database is fairly easy to
do with Ruby and one of the "ORMs" which is the glue code between Ruby
and the database engines.
