Hi, really useful book so far. The way i’m using it is as follows:
I’m translating the python code in the book “Programming the Semantic Web” into ruby as a way of learning more about Ruby and mostly the Semantic Web stuff.
I decided to use your book and Cucumber to drive out the code. It has been a really useful process and I have found that most of the time, as I need a bit more advanced stuff in cucumber, your book provided it. When it came to tables however, I hit a wall as there is not an example of how to deal with the tables in the step definitions. I got past it by going to one of Ryan Bate’s railscasts , but I think you need to flesh out the tutorial part of the book to help people like me.
The other thing i’d like more guidance on is how to deal with actions that return arrays or hashes of results. I suspect that your advanced chapters might contains this stuff or it may be I need to go to the rspec book instead? I was hoping to be able to provide a table of results to be compared as well as a table to set up the scenarios.
Anyway, as I said, great book that has really helped me out. Keep it coming!
