Hello, Imagine I have a form designer, which allow me to design a web form (at run-time). I don't have any idea how to save the data in db (table ddl?), so I can easily list or search the data. I though of writing the hash directly from the form to db, but I think there must be better solution(s)? Any idea, articles or design pattern on the subject? Thank you all in advance, Dunnil

What's your schema look like for having run-time defined forms? I would think something like: form_type --< field form --< field_value field_value >-- field form >-- form_type (Like my whacky crow's foot notation?) If this is the case, then each entry in your form is actually a row, so you can use collection-based form helpers (<%= input "field_value" ...) and get it all done pretty easily. There's a section on using collection forms in the Agile book.
