I need some informations about the scripting with Ruby.
Is it possible to do this feature directly (or indirectly) :
- manage processus (start, get the status, stop),
- get the return of a program,
- get the program output,
- the exploit of SQL's request is easy ?
- access to COM component is possible ?
- access to the AD (test the presence of an object, find his full
- exchange variables between processus,
- have a graphic interface to request informations to the user,
- do libraries (with version, ...) ?
A lot of questions who don't have founded answers...
Thank you in advance for your answers,

Sure there are various ways to interact with processes, this seems to
be a pretty good overview of the basic Ruby functionality:
You might find it instructive also to look at some process monitoring
tools written in Ruby like

Quite. there are both low-level bindings to various databases, as well
as higher level ORM mapping libraries like DataMapper and ActiveRecord
(the latter part of Ruby on Rails) which provide db independence and
an object-oriented interface.

I don't do much with MS platforms, but googling for "ruby component
object model" seems to provide some useful info.

I assume you mean Active Directory here. Again, not much direct
knowledge, but there are certainly LDAP bindings for Ruby which I'm
pretty sure have been successfully used to interact with Active
If you want tight integration with MS frameworks you might look at IronRuby
