Where do you all think the web service client code (for a REST service)
access fit in a Rails App?
Models are what Controllers call and should probably do so now also even
though its Non-Active Record.
However, Models use the web service REST Access code to get XML and
parse it to give ActiveRecord style responses to controller.
Where should the Net:Http connection style requests be made–
in lib or initializer requiring lib or as create as a new plugin?
Where does the parsing of XML code happen-- in Model Itself?
Is the Rails Helper directory directed more towards views helpful here?
Getting it done could be easy to do everything in controller. However,
want to make it more well designed and scaleable from future
perspective. Hence, above code layout questions.
Please advise based on experiences.
Thanks in Advance.
