Action Web Service and rails 2.0

Hi,

Just thought I'd share what we did to get action web service to go on rails 2.0 http://www.texperts.com/2007/12/21/using-action-web-service-with-rails-20/

Very cool. Question though, do you always have to have the entire
rails trunk frozen into vendor/rails? That's the only way I can get
it to work.

That's always what we do anyway.
But assuming you can get a gem for the latest version of it I don't
see why that wouldn't work

If you normally run your app of gems what you could do is put the AWS
source wherever you want , and then put an initializer in config/
initializers that does

$LOAD_PATH.unshift RAILS_ROOT+'/vendor/actionwebservice/lib/'
require RAILS_ROOT+'/vendor/actionwebservice/lib/actionwebservice'

Assuming you'd put it in vendor/actionwebservice.
This should replace the bits where you do

class Rails::Configuration
attr_accessor :action_web_service
end
and

config.frameworks += [ :action_web_service]

config.action_web_service = Rails::OrderedOptions.new

Does that work ?
