I’m implementing a Rails front end to a Windows system by using RESTful
web services to send data back and forth. Luckyly all the business
objects in the Windows system know how to serialize themselves into XML
so it’s not too complicated.
But when I looked at the XML that gets sent back to the service in a
POST when you do a myresource.save, all the fields that had underscores
come across with hyphens in place, which is incredibly weird. Is this
something ActiveResource is doing or is it something happening on the
Windows side of things?
