I am in the process of trying to date hierarchical data in a MySQL
database and convert it into a treeview view JS scripting. As a beginner
to ROR there are still many unknown things to me, and handling this sort
of data is one of them. My question is this: Is there any built in
functionality for handling hierarchical data (via a MySQL DB) in
Rails/Ruby? If there is can someone please explain it or link to
documentation on it? That would be of great help, thanks.
