Subject connect Ruby on Rails app to Couchdb, using library or just plain http connection ?
Date Sun, 22 Aug 2010 05:33:24 GMT
Hi All

it's the first time i post an email in here :), so let me introduce
myself, i'm Aditya, a Ruby on Rails (RoR) developer and a long time
SQL user
days ago, i decided to learn something new, and i found "NoSql" as new
kids on the block in database area, it seems fun to learn any other
paradigm beside SQL
so i picked apache couchdb and install it in my Mac, now i'm ready to
develop my personal project using RoR & CouchDB
in Ruby world, there are bunch of CouchDb library that can be used to
connect to RoR, i found couchrest & couch potato seems pretty

i read the couchdb tutorial a bit, and it's suprise me, because the
data can be accessed from HTTP directly
this fact actually made me think, if there a way to access couchdb
data directly, why do we need some kind of library as "middleware"  ?
i mean in OLD days sql, it's imposible to connect  from Programming
Language to Database directly, so that's why they create
driver/library for it

so i need any advise from you guys, which path i need to choose, using
plain http connection or using a library ?, to connect Rails App to
Couch Db

any advise is much appreciated

*apologize for my bad english, it isn't my main language*
