Topic: running two schema in parallel (originally posted to App Theory forum)
The project is going to take some time to complete and I would like to implement it one module at a time. The PHP application will run in parallel with the new RoR modules, updating the same mySQL database.
One initial problem is that I would like to change the mySQL schema to RoR's naming convention, but don't want to change the PHP code. Can I use two separate schemas in mySQL? Any other ideas on solving this? - I'd like to avoid adapting the RoR code to fit the legacy schema.
I'd be grateful for any advice.
