REST / WS adapter for Rails


#1

Is anyone building an adapter that would enable a Rails
application to interface to a REST or SOAP web API?
It would enable a Rails app to consume REST or SOAP
via a model. Or is not worth the effort because web
services are so different from databases, even though
they are typically data sources?

Please reply to removed_email_address@domain.invalid.

Richard,

Maybe this will do what you want:

Frankly, I had some trouble getting to actually work but once I’d
gotten over that hurdle, I appreciate its utility.

Google SOAP::Marshal… Looks like it’s already been done.
