Activeresource

Use HTTP Basic authentication on the server providing the
ActiveResources. You can set the credentials for accessing via HTTP
Basic in ActiveResource. Ideally you'll probably create a 'base'
resource that has the credentials and site info and then inherit from
that for the rest of your ARes classes.

Thanks for the response.

I have been able to do http authentication by crateing a base resource
but my requirements are such that I cannot make a base resource
containing the site crediantials rather I have to dynamically assign the
crediantials according to the users authentication.......Can you suggest
me how to do that ? I have to access the server resources by a remote
client using activeresource but the remote client too has a client which
provides crediantials to remote client instead to the server now If i
create a static base resource in the remote client, I can only deal with
one user i guess but condition demands me to make this process dynamic ?
anu suggestions will be helpful.

If you use restful_authentication then you can authenticate against any
number of different users. Implement a role-based system on top of it
with the appropriate filters in the RESTful controllers, and you're set
to go.
