I am new to this list and I just wanted to see if someone can help me out with a small problem I have.
I am building a Rails app using web services (i.e. SOAP and XML-RPC possibly REST later). My problem is that I want to load a, relatively, big object map (~5M) into memory as my application will not make use of any database backend.
I’d like to load this object map while rails is booting up and then be able to access it from the controllers. Does anyone know how to do that (i.e. load some object into a shared memory in rails that makes it available to the controllers)?
Thanks a lot in advance,
