Newbie: How do I use Ruby on Rails to accept XML, parse it a

I’ve gone through this excellent tutorial:
http://instantrails.rubyforge.org/tutorial/index.html
but I still can’t quite wrap my brain around how to do what I want, and
being a newbie I’m finding it hard to know what to Google for.

Basically, I want to have a web service that accepts XML, parses it and
stores the data in a database. Seems simply enough conceptually. An
overview may be all I need, but I am having trouble finding it.

Any suggestions?
Thanks

And of course if Ruby on Rails makes no sense for this , let me know
that too :wink:

You may want to check out the pdf , Web Services on Rails, it’s from
O’Reilly, don’t remember what I paid, 10+ maybe a few dollars more.
Some pretty simple things in there to get you started.
