I would like understood routes, scaffolding etc. "Head First Ruby on
Rails" has a very old Rails. I am working with Rails 4. On 93 page "Head
First Ruby on Rails"/polish edition/Helion 2010
there is:
ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
map.connect '/ads/:id', :controller=> 'ads', :action=>'show'
map.connect ':controller/:action/:id'
map.conect ':controller/:action/:id.:format'

In "Agile Web Development in Rails 4" there is something different
and I do not know, how change to Rails4 the cod of "Head First Ruby on
on the 92 page  "Agile Web Development in Rails 4 - in English, 2013" is
something like this:
Download rails40/depot_d/config/routes.rb
Depot::Application.routes.draw do
get "store/index"
resources :products


Could Anybody help me to change/write in Rails4 the project's

There's a free course at that goes through the
entire process of building a Rails application (and along the way,
understanding what Rails is and does and doesn't do).

Basically since the upgrade to rails 4.
map has been deprecated, instead is more secure to specify the HTTP verb
the route GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, DELETE, also rails use the CRUD
that stand for Create, Read, Update, Delete, this the basic actions that
rails provide inside our controller when doing a scaffold, also Index,
So when creating the routes you have to specify a URL, which goes to a
controller and an action.


get           'store/index',        to: 'store#index',          as:

HTTP             URL             controller#action              name

the name part will give you some helper methods: store_url and
Usually when creating a scaffold it will generate in your routes files a
line like this resources :store, which will provide all the routes for
