This repository has a Ruby on Rails example that implements a basic REST API server. The scenario is that of an e-commerce application. Database access in this application is managed through ActiveRecord ORM. It consists of the following.

  • The users of the e-commerce site are stored in the users table.
  • The products table contains a list of products the e-commerce site sells.
  • The orders placed by the users are populated in the orders table. An order can consist of multiple line items, each of these are inserted in the orderline table.

The source for the above application can be found in the repository. There are a number of options that can be customized in the properties file located at config/database.yml.
