Is anyone building an adapter that would enable a Rails application to interface to a REST or SOAP web API? It would enable a Rails app to consume REST or SOAP via a model. Or is not worth the effort because web services are so different from databases, even though they are typically data sources? Please reply to email@example.com. -- Richard Cunningham E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

Richard, Maybe this will do what you want: http://www.xml.com/lpt/a/2005/11/02/rest-on-rails.html Frankly, I had some trouble getting to actually *work* but once I'd gotten over that hurdle, I appreciate its utility. -Mark
