Wiling to learn ruby, any references to the basic mateiral pls.

Hello,

 

I wanted to explore ruby for a while, and there is no better place than getting suggestions from this community. How is ruby tied to Salesforce, what applications can be created or built (any real time / real world examples please). Also, i would like to learn ruby, and you can consider me as worse than a dummy in programming. So please refer me the very basic of ruby learning resources.

 

Thanks.

http://docs.rubygems.org/read/book/2 - RubyGems command reference
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/getting_started.html - Great getting started guide for developing Rails apps

any chance we could get a timeline on when the follow up will be..

 

I'm finding that the toolkit is great in that it greatly simplifies accessing the API, but lacks much of the control you get. Example searching for Accounts by name quickly results in the following error.

 

MALFORMED_QUERY: SOQL statements can not be longer than 10000 characters.

 

try rforce and irb to learn the api.. much more 'dirty' but you'll have so much more control

The SF RubyToolKit wraps around the RForce GEM. So, you have access to it. I believe the latest Rforce is 0.6 which is already a prerequisite to ASF-SOAP-ADAPTER 1.1
