Hi, i've two applications (APP1 and APP2) and i want that APP2 is able to get data from APP1. I think that a simple rest web service is the way to go. Do you have some good examples/tutorials? I've googled but i find only old examples with the deprecated action web service. From the client, who get the xml, how does reconvert it into ruby/model objects?

It's actually pretty useful when interfacing API's that are non-rails.

You mean activeresource for the rest approach ? for that sure, but you'd always have the client who request a given url and get some xml to parse... right? Which is the better format to give the client between xml and json ? And how to parse back from xml/json to a an object to include in the db? Just a simple loop over all the data and a Model.create(......) for each? Nate L. wrote: > If the apps aren't rails specific, I would suggest to write a simple > rack application.

remotely related ... Can Rails on Ruby work with an established sqlite3 (or mySQL) database? the tutorials I have read so far build the sqlite3 tables with the $ "ruby script/generate model ... " command. I guess what I am trying to figure out is if the Ruby R. platform will be a wise investment of my time to learn and eventually become proficient if my goal is to build some web applications that interact to already established databases. I would prefer to build my database the old fashioned way - e.g., SQL CREATE statements - and be able to modify the structure on the fly (structure and data). The web pages would be a simple GUI interface for my computer challenged friends! :) I am hopeful that the Rails on Ruby will allow that flexibility? Eventually, I suspect that I will be good enough to do it all in Rails like you all do. Advice? thanks in advance

Yeah rails is fine to do this stuff in. We use migrations because thy make structure maintenance easier especially if your app is deployed in multiple locations (or even just across a deployment an a development machine) Sent from my iPhone On 29/01/2009, at 4:11 PM, Jay Mcgratgh <email@example.com
