At the Forge - RJS Templates
To create a new Rails project called ajaxdemo, type:
Now, let's create a simple controller called showme:
script/generate controller showme
We're not going to have any model in this system, but you still might have to define one or more lines in config/database.yml. Instead, let's create a new view within our showme controller, stored as app/views/showme/index.rhtml, shown in Listing 1.
Listing 1. index.rhtml
So far, we haven't done anything special. Now, however, we're going to do something a bit more sophisticated: send the contents of our text field to the server in an Ajax call. The server's response will be our headline, translated into Pig Latin.
Our updated template is shown in Listing 2. We have made a number of changes, starting with the fact that our form now has an id attribute associated with it, named theForm. The form contains a single element, a text field whose name is future_headline. Note that we need to use the name attribute instead of the id attribute, so that the form element will be submitted with our Ajax call. Also notice that we have changed the name to a Ruby-friendly future_headline (with an underscore), rather than the CSS-friendly future-headline (with a hyphen).

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
