Integrating RESTful Rails

Hi Dav[id|e],

You can't really mix and match RESTful and non-RESTful design can you? It would seem to spoil the whole point of REST.

Also, I saw DHH's RubyConf2006 keynote, and I'm trying my best to follow his (your) advice. So far, I'm at a mental loss for naming the "things" which form the many-to-many relationships between Users and Roles, and Roles and Rights in my RESTful authorization code. Can you help? Do you have any practical tips for when a decent name isn't readily available?

I think I've come up with good enough names.

Between User and Role: RoleMembership ('Membership' is likely to show up again, so the "Role" prefix gives it a bit of context.)
Between Role and Right: Authority

Thanks, anyway. Feel free to comment, if you have some tips, or other examples that we might learn from.


I'm trying to think, but nothing happens.
