Basically I have 2 systems, where I want to develop (and use) my application:

  1. A Linux (Debian) system. This is my server. Here I have PostgreSQL (& phpPgAdmin), Apache, Ruby. Typically I use this system from remote, using a DynDNS-Service (this is working fine). Note: Usually I do my SW-Installations there via apt-get (so: No Source-Code).

  2. A Windows 7 Notebook, which is my "working-system", my client. Here I have Aptana-Studio, Ruby ( & also a PostgreSQL-DB). (Actually I don't want to install Eclipse)

What I intend to do: Develop, test (and use) a Web-Application on my Notebook; using Aptana-Studio, PostgreSQL (remotely @ Linux), Ruby (on Rails) & JQuery.

Where I am confused about:

  1. Where do I have to install what?
  2. And what do I have to configure & how?
  3. Are there special drivers (or add-ons) I need, for this to work? If yes: Where shall I install them?

Can somebody please help me?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

If you already have these things installed, why are you asking about installation? Configuring what? – Sathya Aug 15 '11 at 12:12
One example: I expected, that I could configure my DB-Connection (as mentioned: PostgreSQL on remote Debian-Server) in my new Aptana-Project. But I can't: I don't see such an option. So I guess, that something is missing. But what? To me it seems: I have all the bits and pieces installed, but not the connections between them :-) – Rolf Aug 15 '11 at 15:49
Maybe I should be more specific. Step by step. So my question No. 1 is: I created a new (still empty) rails-project in Aptana Studio 3. Now I want to I configure my DB-Connection (a postgreSQL-DB on a remote Debian-Server). Help I find talk about a "Database-perspecitve", which I should open. But a thing like this does not exist. Other help talk about an Add-On (Quantum DB); but this is related to Aptana 2 (I have 3) and, anyway, I don't find a button to include AddOns. – Rolf Aug 15 '11 at 18:03
