Colons and semicolons in REST URIs

Hi all,

In the book RESTful Web Services[1] (from O'Reilly) there's a little section about URI design where it tells you to use "semicolons" or "commas" to separate pieces of information at the same level.

For example, suppose I've got a Message resource and I wanna take all the messages between two dates: '/messages/2007-12-01,2007-12-10'.

Does exist any "canonical" way to achieve this in Rails 2?

Thank you in advance.

You can define routes like: /foo/:date1/:date2 and map it to ur controller and action. I don't
think it is possible to separate them by comma

Thank you. I thought I couldn't :stuck_out_tongue:
