Chapter 20 has the details on why this is, but the short version is that if you type the command rake routes, amongst the output you will see the following:

edit_article GET /products/:id/edit {:controller=>"products", :action=>"edit"}

as well as the following:


So, while the two URLs you mentioned will match separate rules, the end result is that the same controller, action, and id results from either.

Thanx Sam, i´ll wait until i get to chapter 20 although i did a quick sneak at and saw that the chapter is quite interesting, plus the thing called REST … actually REST appears to be there for ages and just now we are going to make use of it … we were re-inventing the wheel before?

I´m finally getting the idea between a Post (insert) and Get (select), heheh
