Greetings!

Here is an excerpt from the description of the book on Amazon.com
>>The Web 2.0 and Deployment chapters have been completely rewritten to reflect the latest thinking.
<<
Did the "latest thinking" show up as changes in Rails 1.2,
or were these chapters just updated based on the "latest thinking",
or was it a combination of both?

Thanks you,
Mike

Greetings to All!

I have read a lot about Ruby On Rails, Web 2.0, Appfuse etc. But I don't understand the difference and how all these relate to each other. Will this book help me understand the overall picture?

Thanks!

Please start a new thread for your questions instead of replying to an existing one.

Thanks.

The book was developed in parallel with Rails 1.2, ad documents stuff that's in 1.2. That caused me problems when the book first appeared and 1.2 wasn't generally released, but now that 1.2 is out, the framework has finally caught up with the book!
