SQL Question

Rails 3 execute custom sql query without a model

I need to write a standalone ruby script that is supposed to deal with database. I used code given below in rails 3

@connection = ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
:adapter => "mysql2",
:host => "localhost",
:database => "siteconfig_development",
:username => "root",
:password => "root123"
)

results = @connection.execute("select * from users")
results.each do |row|
puts row[0]
end


but getting error:-

`<main>': undefined method `execute' for #<ActiveRecord::ConnectionAdapters::ConnectionPool:0x00000002867548> (NoMethodError)


what i am missing here?

SOLUTION

After getting solution from denis-bu i used it following way and that worked too.

@connection = ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(
:adapter => "mysql2",
:host => "localhost",
:database => "siteconfig_development",
:username => "root",
:password => "root123"
)

sql = "SELECT * from users"
@result = @connection.connection.execute(sql);
@result.each(:as => :hash) do |row|
puts row["email"]
end

Answer

Maybe try this:

ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection(...)
ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute(...)
