Ajax on Rails
Subject:   static class variables in the controller
Date:   2005-10-23 15:43:18

I'm new to rails n had a question on your example. I got everything to work and for kicks, i added the following code into my controller for testing the ajax observer functions:

@@mycount = 0
def live_search
@@mycount += 1
render_text("count is : " + @@mycount.to_s + "

I was expecting to see the count increasing by 1 evertime i changed the search text but this is not the case and the variable always remains at 1.

Would you know why this is the case ? Would i have to change some options on my webrick server ?
