I prefer a 3-tier approach, with all the buisness logic on the

You’re already using ActiveRecord…why not throw the rest of
the Rails stack in and use REST, XML-RPC or SOAP?


Transfering ActiveRecord objects to the client through Drb,
transparently, appears to me to be much more effective than using an
API, like the one you get with a REST-enabled server. But REST could be
an option, yes. I have just asked the Qt team if the link between REST
and Qt is easy to do.
