I need to split some information up between two servers, and wanted to

don’t know how I can actually use it. I downloaded Rails trunk to
mess with ActiveResource, but it seems that it doesn’t have create
functionality enabled yet.
Is it possible to use AR fully? If not, what’s the best way to
consume REST services?
It’s not ready. I have some code I’m using in a client app with it,
but I’m waiting to get it approved by David. Not only does it not do
create, it also totally ignores prefixes. I’ve hacked this in, along
with a couple of configurable options, and I want to make sure it
flows with the original vision.
If you’re unclear what ActiveResource is, think of it as an
opinionated consumer for your simply restful apps.
