Pure xml output from ActiveRecord::Base takes approx 20s for 500
objects (that are small and simple). Does anyone have any pointers?
How fast is REXML?
Slow as hell. We just did a refactoring today, going from xml to json to
pass AR data between apps. We achieved an order of magnitude speed
increase and profiling showed 70% of the time on the client side was
spent parsing xml and 30% on the server side creating the xml
If you’re stuck with XML I’d look into a replacement for rexml.
