routes.rb ... killing the apps ??

I followed these exact steps, and didn't get the stated behavior.
Everything worked
fine here (Rails 2.2.2, OS X 10.5).

If anybody's going to be able to solve your problem, they'll need more
information:

- versions, versions, versions. Which Rails? Which Netbeans? Which
operating system?
- "not working" (even in all caps) isn't a problem description. Does
it throw an exception?
What appears in development.log when the code is "not working"?

Product Version: NetBeans IDE 6.5 (Build 200811100001)
Java: 1.5.0_16; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.5.0_16-132
System: Mac OS X version 10.4.11 running on ppc; MacRoman; it_IT (nb)
Jruby 1.1.4
Rails 2.1.0

Not working means when you click on "create" you just get rediret to
/animals but witout the creation of the animal
(the green message "Animal was successfully created." ) dont show up

in the developmet.log there is

Simone, you should restart your webserver after the second scaffolding (step 5).

I agree with this - the problem you ran into was that the routes file
didn't get reloaded correctly. This is a known issue (see
http://rails.lighthouseapp.com/projects/8994/tickets/981-fix-for-routing-optimization-code
) with the 2.1 series. I would *highly* recommend that you upgrade to
2.2.2, or even wait a bit for 2.3 to drop. Apart from supporting
production sites, there's very little reason to stay with older
versions, and lots of reasons (read: fixed bugs) to move forward.
