Interact with Rails REST web service using Flash


has anybody used a Rails REST web service from Flash? I have the
following problem:

  • If I use Flash’s XML object to send the request, i can send xml and
    parse the response as xml ok, but I have no idea how to send the _method
    parameter for correct routing.

  • If I use Flash’s LoadVars object, I can send the _method parameter
    easily, but have no idea how to teach LoadVars to parse the incoming
    response as xml.
