Coherent wrapper object-relational mapping for REST web services
Active Resource attempts to provide a coherent wrapper object-relational mapping for REST web services. It follows the same philosophy as Active Record, in that one of its prime aims is to reduce the amount of code needed to map to these resources. This is made possible by relying on a number of code- and protocol-based conventions that make it easy for Active Resource to infer complex relations and structures.
These conventions are outlined in detail in the documentation for ActiveResourceBase.
