Can someone give me a quick rundown on ActiveResource? Is is included in rails 1.2.3? How do I start using it? How does it work with ActiveRecord? Is there a script/generate command for it? Where is the documentation and tutorials? Thanks in advance.

Where is the > documentation and tutorials? Active Resource has yet to get an official release. It's not included in 1.2.3, only available from SVN. Ryan has an intro at: http://ryandaigle.com/articles/2006/06/30/whats-ne... Guide to get it working in your app: http://reprocessed.org/blog/archives/2006/08/01/ac...

I submitted a patch to do just this but was told that ARes will probably be an external install from Rails. For now, as says the guide DHH posted, you'll need to manually type out the path to the activeresource install. Otherwise, the library works quite well and I've yet to find any issues with it. Simply define your models to be: class MyResource < ActiveResource::Base self.site_url = "http://path/to/server" ... credentials ... end and you're on your way. You only get #find for now, depending on how much data the server is sending back (the :include directive of to_xml). Just a warning though, I did have a problem with the server code and #to_xml, described here: http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/8017 Jason
