I have a question regarding using Rails as a REST web service. I
understand the concept and have implemented it into a project.
As far as I'm logged in into the application, I can pull out data in any
format that is specified in the application.
But lets say that I want to use it as a service. How do I pull the data
out? When you use SOAP / WSDL, you send your request in xml format
together with authentication data (login/pass), but how does this work
In my application, when a user is logged in, his user data gets stored
in a session. But when you speak with the application through lets say a
script, I need to send my login data that needs to be verified, but no
session will be created.
I hope someone can help me in the right direction.
Thank you in advance
