ibm_db 2.5.10 adapter for Ruby and Rails

The release of DB2 Express-C 10.1 was accompanied by updates to drivers, extensions, and adapters for many programming languages. One of them is the ibm_db adapter for Ruby and Rails.

It's straightforward on Windows and Linux:

gem install ibm_db

From experience, I would expect Linux installation to require libstdc++ and libaio packages as well as the DB2 headers included in the IBM Data Server Driver for ODBC and CLI. Windows installation shouldn't have any dependencies other than the Ruby programming language and Ruby's gem package manager.

Next steps
