Right for Ruby on Rails?

I have some web forms and a mysql database with matching fields. I am
trying to put them together.

What I want to do is user to enter info into forms, put info in db
tables, need a script to add metadata to various fields, before and
after entered text, and output an xml document.

Thanks for the help.

Given that you seem to already have your schema in hand (your current
database), working up a RoR application to do those basics should be
trivial. Scaffold the whole thing, and just add your additional code
where you need it.

I bootstrapped myself in RoR with the “Agile Web D. with Rails”
book from The Pragmatic Programmers. Highly recommended

Sounds like you’re new to RoR? Try our training class for newcomers
to Ruby and Rails: essentialrails.com. It’s coming up in September.
We cover the basics of the Rails MVC architecture, ActiveRecord usage,
and more, and is especially aimed at those coming from another
framework (.net, php, etc.) or if you’ve never done any web
development before at all.

If you can’t make it, I suggest starting with Agile Web D.
with Rails, 2nd edition book, or Ruby for Rails. Both are excellent
books to help you get started.
