I’m not sure about this (a really new RoR user), but I’d say RoR uses
the @paper instance on the View as a container of the inserted form
values, thus resending the new information back to the controller
(after a Submit action) encapsulated on the object (chech the params
hash to see how it travels).
But I could be wrong, since I’m recently learning this incredible and
interesting new framework
I dont think this is good advice. I definitely recommend that newbies
experiment with the built in scaffolding, to learn the rails
conventions and fundamentals. Then, move on, remembering Rails
scaffolding, you will probably write your own controllers. Or perhaps
pick up a plug in like Active Scaffold (which do I use and like alot,
btw) if you want ajaxy tables in your views.
