That’s going to depend at least partially on what it is you want to
do with rails. Rails will generate XML from ActiveRecord objects (and
accept some XML as input) by default. Check out:

in-rails-12/

Rails itself makes use of Builder, so for anything more complex you’d
be best off checking that out first.

Hi, James

First, thanks you very much for the information!!! Thanks, what I want
to do is simple read/write and search in an XML file, like xpath, I
wonder if there are already some predefined classes or modules that can
perform the task?

Rexml comes with stock Ruby and will do most everything you need:

if you need Xpath, then you can try with REXML. It supports
DOM,Xpath,SAX and StaX… for an easier XML parser (a XML to ruby
objects mapper) you can try simpleXml. There are more libraries out
there, but these two come bundled with any RoR installation, so there is
a decent documentation and they work out-of-the-box
