RESTful Resources

By

Definition:

RESTful Resources - Rails controllers routed through the resources controller (with map.resources) rather than the CRUD convention. Routing using the resources mapper gives the added benefit of only allowing certain request types on your actions. For example, the show action should only be accessible with a GET request type, while the create action should only be accessible with the POST request type. Also, the RESTful resources mapper will also emulate HTTP request types not implemented by web browsers such as PUT and DELETE.
