this thread seems to have stopped, but I wonder how far you got with
application. I have been googling for some time now and the
handling xml files in rails is sparse. (To be fair, rails is aimed at
database apps.) .
I wanted to do something very much along the same lines, although not
quite so complex as your requirement. After entering data into tables,
want to save the summary (an order with customer detailsm and order
information) in fairly simple xml format on the (intanet) server where
can be separately accessed as required. Then I want to allow the user
reload the xml file at a later date, be able to modify it and save it
If you had any helpful examples, I would be most grateful. I am not
xml or xslt expert, but I need to grapple with this. I have done some
file handling/editing in php, but managing something similar from rails
not seem to be quite so obvious.
Once I have my xml file, I thought I could build an xslt to allow it to
later viewed in a browser. And I am also thinking towards providing the
ability to import it into OpenOffice for off line editing.
I would be grateful for any useful links or advice you might be able to
