Hey all,

I'm just starting in rails and am working on my first app.  I need to do
inline editing for  2-15 rows of data on a page.  I found Ajax
Scaffolding here:

And it is EXACTLY what I want in my app.  But I've also been trying to
read a bit up on RJS Templates.  Are they basically the same things
except RJS is built into rails or is the Ajax scaffolding just built
from the RJS templates?

I'm wondering if I should just try and implement what I need with
ajaxscaffold or if it would be better/easier for me to built it with RJS
templates (which I don't know much about as of yet).  Thanks for any

The AjaxScaffold generator allows you to quickly generate an
application based on your current database. You will then need to take
what it generates and customize it to fit your needs. This will
actually generate the RJS files for you.

Using the generator may speed things up for you and help you learn how
to use RJS.
