Salesforce integration with Rails app

I have problem here and have searched a lot on net but did not get any

Now what i am trying to do is create a rails app which talks to SalesForec
I did a search found a Rails gem called 'activesalesforce’
Now i installed it as per the instructions at And it got installed properly with
dependencies. Even check it in the gem list.
Now when i try try run my server(using webrick fro dev), it gives me error:-
*F:\salesforcetestapp>ruby script/server
=> Booting WEBrick…
dapters/abstract/connection_specification.rb:231:in establish_connection': Please install the activesalesforce adapter:gem install
activerecord-activesalesforce-adapter` (no such file to

*I am updated my rails and other gems.
Now i have :-
Rails - 2.0.2
Ruby is 1.8.5
MySql is 5.0.27
WebRick is 1.3.1

Also another issue with this salesforce integration is that i am not getting
resource or blog online which speaks about rails implementation of saleforce
I have questions like "How do we access local db when salesforce gem makes
the db configuration in a way that seems that rails app can access only
salesfore dataset?"
Generally pointers to how do i go about doing the integration.
So if anyone can throw any light, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
