Crash during init if DB config doesn't exist

Reported by Nick Hoffman | March 10th, 2009 @ 04:54 PM | in 2.x

If a Rails application uses ActiveRecord but does not use a database, Rails will crash during initialization because the database config file does not exist.

If you're wondering why/how an application would use AR but not use a database, have a look at Jonathan Viney's ActiveRecord::BaseWithoutTable[1]. It's very useful.

I've attached a patch that causes Rails' initialization to check for the existence of the database config file before attempting to read the config and connect to the database.
