Rails, REST, and anarchist XML
by Simon St. Laurent
I'm happy to report that Ruby on Rails not only offers a comfortable way to develop web applications, but that a little-noticed feature makes some formerly theoretical open approaches to XML much more immediately practical.
I couldn't agree more ;-)
WRT - "we may finally be reaching the point where XML is starting to behave the way Walter Perry said it should, unconstrained by data structures negotiated in advance" - I'm definately a subscriber!
|The state of XML tools in 2001 when Simon asked: via the WayBack Machine. Cute :-)|
|I've been looking for this for quite a while now. It was a difficult task to find something so simple... I create an XML doc using XMLSimple and then serve it using render :xml. Easy!|
