hi, i'm working with a model with a has_many association. i'm using the complex forms (ala ryan bates) design. it's been straight forward i've just followed that particular design, using a map.resources route, & 7 action controller. The models are: Booking has_many :booking_items when adding booking_items its a fairly lengthy process, i need to page the form for selecting items etc, so up to now i've been saving the Booking with a State='Created' (AASM). and editing the model until the user pays at which point i move the model into a 'Paid' state. But to try n simplify it i've decided to put the model in session state and once its ready to be created i then follow the usual path, or 'post' to 'create' etc. my question is, when adding booking_items to my booking in session state i'm posting to a custom action on my controller, and when clearing session (for a 'Start Again' button) again i'm posting to a custom method which clears the session. it doesnt really feel right but i'm not really sure of any alternatives, has anyone got any advise? cheers.
