Splitting resources or not


#1

I have a resource named ‘users’ and another one ‘posts’, but these one
can have ‘offers’ or ‘requests’…

shouild I define 2 other resources or keep only one, using something
like :

map.resources :users, :collection => { :offer => :get }
map.resources :users, :collection => { :request => :get }

which will give me helper methods like :

offer_users_url #=> “/users;offer”
request_users_url #=> “/users;request”

and adding my own prefix to the generated url name:

map.resources :users, :collection => { :offer => :get }, :name_prefix =>
‘my_’
map.resources :users, :collection => { :request => :get }, :name_prefix
=> ‘my_’

giving
my_offer_users_url #=> “/users;offer”
my_offer_users_url #=> “/users;offer”

what is the best design ? one or 2 resources …

Can you explain this just a bit more? What are these “offers” and
“requests”, and how are they represented in your model associations?
