  # Action Controllers are the core of a web request in Rails. They are made up of one or more actions that are executed
  # on request and then either render a template or redirect to another action. An action is defined as a public method
  # on the controller, which will automatically be made accessible to the web-server through Rails Routes.
  #
  # A sample controller could look like this:
  #
  # class GuestBookController < ActionController::Base
  # def index
  # @entries = Entry.find(:all)
  # end
  #
  # def sign
  # Entry.create(params[:entry])
  # redirect_to :action => "index"
  # end
  # end
  #
  # Actions, by default, render a template in the <tt>app/views</tt> directory corresponding to the name of the controller and action
  # after executing code in the action. For example, the +index+ action of the GuestBookController would render the
  # template <tt>app/views/guestbook/index.erb</tt> by default after populating the <tt>@entries</tt> instance variable.
  #
  # Unlike index, the sign action will not render a template. After performing its main purpose (creating a
  # new entry in the guest book), it initiates a redirect instead. This redirect works by returning an external
  # "302 Moved" HTTP response that takes the user to the index action.
  #
  # The index and sign represent the two basic action archetypes used in Action Controllers. Get-and-show and do-and-redirect.
  # Most actions are variations of these themes.
  #
  # == Requests
  #
  # Requests are processed by the Action Controller framework by extracting the value of the "action" key in the request parameters.
  # This value should hold the name of the action to be performed. Once the action has been identified, the remaining
  # request parameters, the session (if one is available), and the full request with all the HTTP headers are made available to
  # the action through instance variables. Then the action is performed.
  #
  # The full request object is available with the request accessor and is primarily used to query for HTTP headers. These queries
  # are made by accessing the environment hash, like this:
  #
  # def server_ip
  # location = request.env["SERVER_ADDR"]
  # render :text => "This server hosted at #{location}"
  # end
  #
  # == Parameters
  #
  # All request parameters, whether they come from a GET or POST request, or from the URL, are available through the params method
  # which returns a hash. For example, an action that was performed through <tt>/weblog/list?category=All&limit=5</tt> will include
  # <tt>{ "category" => "All", "limit" => 5 }</tt> in params.
  #
  # It's also possible to construct multi-dimensional parameter hashes by specifying keys using brackets, such as:
  #
  # <input type="text" name="post[name]" value="david">
  # <input type="text" name="post[address]" value="hyacintvej">
  #
  # A request stemming from a form holding these inputs will include <tt>{ "post" => { "name" => "david", "address" => "hyacintvej" } }</tt>.
  # If the address input had been named "post[address][street]", the params would have included
  # <tt>{ "post" => { "address" => { "street" => "hyacintvej" } } }</tt>. There's no limit to the depth of the nesting.
  #
  # == Sessions
  #
  # Sessions allows you to store objects in between requests. This is useful for objects that are not yet ready to be persisted,
  # such as a Signup object constructed in a multi-paged process, or objects that don't change much and are needed all the time, such
  # as a User object for a system that requires login. The session should not be used, however, as a cache for objects where it's likely
  # they could be changed unknowingly. It's usually too much work to keep it all synchronized -- something databases already excel at.
  #
  # You can place objects in the session by using the <tt>session</tt> method, which accesses a hash:
  #
  # session[:person] = Person.authenticate(user_name, password)
  #
  # And retrieved again through the same hash:
  #
  # Hello #{session[:person]}
  #
  # For removing objects from the session, you can either assign a single key to +nil+:
  #
  # # removes :person from session
  # session[:person] = nil
  #
  # or you can remove the entire session with +reset_session+.
  #
  # Sessions are stored by default in a browser cookie that's cryptographically signed, but unencrypted.
  # This prevents the user from tampering with the session but also allows him to see its contents.
  #
  # Do not put secret information in cookie-based sessions!
  #
  # Other options for session storage are:
  #
  # * ActiveRecordStore - Sessions are stored in your database, which works better than PStore with multiple app servers and,
  # unlike CookieStore, hides your session contents from the user. To use ActiveRecordStore, set
  #
  # config.action_controller.session_store = :active_record_store
  #
  # in your <tt>config/environment.rb</tt> and run <tt>rake db:sessions:create</tt>.
  #
  # * MemCacheStore - Sessions are stored as entries in your memcached cache.
  # Set the session store type in <tt>config/environment.rb</tt>:
  #
  # config.action_controller.session_store = :mem_cache_store
  #
  # This assumes that memcached has been installed and configured properly.
  # See the MemCacheStore docs for more information.
  #
  # == Responses
  #
  # Each action results in a response, which holds the headers and document to be sent to the user's browser. The actual response
  # object is generated automatically through the use of renders and redirects and requires no user intervention.
  #
  # == Renders
  #
  # Action Controller sends content to the user by using one of five rendering methods. The most versatile and common is the rendering
  # of a template. Included in the Action Pack is the Action View, which enables rendering of ERb templates. It's automatically configured.
  # The controller passes objects to the view by assigning instance variables:
  #
  # def show
  # @post = Post.find(params[:id])
  # end
  #
  # Which are then automatically available to the view:
  #
  # Title: <%= @post.title %>
  #
  # You don't have to rely on the automated rendering. Especially actions that could result in the rendering of different templates will use
  # the manual rendering methods:
  #
  # def search
  # @results = Search.find(params[:query])
  # case @results
  # when 0 then render :action => "no_results"
  # when 1 then render :action => "show"
  # when 2..10 then render :action => "show_many"
  # end
  # end
  #
  # Read more about writing ERb and Builder templates in link:classes/ActionView/Base.html.
  #
  # == Redirects
  #
  # Redirects are used to move from one action to another. For example, after a <tt>create</tt> action, which stores a blog entry to a database,
  # we might like to show the user the new entry. Because we're following good DRY principles (Don't Repeat Yourself), we're going to reuse (and redirect to)
  # a <tt>show</tt> action that we'll assume has already been created. The code might look like this:
  #
  # def create
  # @entry = Entry.new(params[:entry])
  # if @entry.save
  # # The entry was saved correctly, redirect to show
  # redirect_to :action => 'show', :id => @entry.id
  # else
  # # things didn't go so well, do something else
  # end
  # end
  #
  # In this case, after saving our new entry to the database, the user is redirected to the <tt>show</tt> method which is then executed.
  #
  # == Calling multiple redirects or renders
  #
  # An action may contain only a single render or a single redirect. Attempting to try to do either again will result in a DoubleRenderError:
  #
  # def do_something
  # redirect_to :action => "elsewhere"
  # render :action => "overthere" # raises DoubleRenderError
  # end
  #
  # If you need to redirect on the condition of something, then be sure to add "and return" to halt execution.
  #
  # def do_something
  # redirect_to(:action => "elsewhere") and return if monkeys.nil?
  # render :action => "overthere" # won't be called if monkeys is nil
  # end
  #

    #
    # By default <tt>application/xml</tt> is enabled. A XmlSimple class with the same param name as the root will be instantiated

      # will produce "/posts/show/10#comments".

      # * <tt>:trailing_slash</tt> - If true, adds a trailing slash, as in "/archive/2005/". Note that this
      # is currently not recommended since it breaks caching.
      # * <tt>:host</tt> - Overrides the default (current) host if provided.
      # * <tt>:protocol</tt> - Overrides the default (current) protocol if provided.
      # * <tt>:port</tt> - Optionally specify the port to connect to.
      # * <tt>:user</tt> - Inline HTTP authentication (only plucked out if <tt>:password</tt> is also present).
      # * <tt>:password</tt> - Inline HTTP authentication (only plucked out if <tt>:user</tt> is also present).
      # * <tt>:skip_relative_url_root</tt> - If true, the url is not constructed using the +relative_url_root+
      # of the request so the path will include the web server relative installation directory.
      #
      # The URL is generated from the remaining keys in the hash. A URL contains two key parts: the <base> and a query string.
      # Routes composes a query string as the key/value pairs not included in the <base>.
      #
      # The default Routes setup supports a typical Rails path of "controller/action/id" where action and id are optional, with
      # action defaulting to 'index' when not given. Here are some typical url_for statements and their corresponding URLs:
      #
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :action => 'recent' # => 'proto://host.com/posts/recent'
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :action => 'index' # => 'proto://host.com/posts'
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :action => 'index', :port=>'8033' # => 'proto://host.com:8033/posts'
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :action => 'show', :id => 10 # => 'proto://host.com/posts/show/10'
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :user => 'd', :password => '123' # => 'proto://d:123@host.com/posts'
      #
      # When generating a new URL, missing values may be filled in from the current request's parameters. For example,
      # <tt>url_for :action => 'some_action'</tt> will retain the current controller, as expected. This behavior extends to
      # other parameters, including <tt>:controller</tt>, <tt>:id</tt>, and any other parameters that are placed into a Route's
      # path.
      #  
      # The URL helpers such as <tt>url_for</tt> have a limited form of memory: when generating a new URL, they can look for
      # missing values in the current request's parameters. Routes attempts to guess when a value should and should not be
      # taken from the defaults. There are a few simple rules on how this is performed:
      #
      # * If the controller name begins with a slash no defaults are used:
      #
      # url_for :controller => '/home'
      #
      # In particular, a leading slash ensures no namespace is assumed. Thus,
      # while <tt>url_for :controller => 'users'</tt> may resolve to
      # <tt>Admin::UsersController</tt> if the current controller lives under
      # that module, <tt>url_for :controller => '/users'</tt> ensures you link
      # to <tt>::UsersController</tt> no matter what.
      # * If the controller changes, the action will default to index unless provided
      #
      # The final rule is applied while the URL is being generated and is best illustrated by an example. Let us consider the
      # route given by <tt>map.connect 'people/:last/:first/:action', :action => 'bio', :controller => 'people'</tt>.
      #
      # Suppose that the current URL is "people/hh/david/contacts". Let's consider a few different cases of URLs which are generated
      # from this page.
      #
      # * <tt>url_for :action => 'bio'</tt> -- During the generation of this URL, default values will be used for the first and
      # last components, and the action shall change. The generated URL will be, "people/hh/david/bio".
      # * <tt>url_for :first => 'davids-little-brother'</tt> This generates the URL 'people/hh/davids-little-brother' -- note
      # that this URL leaves out the assumed action of 'bio'.
      #
      # However, you might ask why the action from the current request, 'contacts', isn't carried over into the new URL. The
      # answer has to do with the order in which the parameters appear in the generated path. In a nutshell, since the
      # value that appears in the slot for <tt>:first</tt> is not equal to default value for <tt>:first</tt> we stop using
      # defaults. On its own, this rule can account for much of the typical Rails URL behavior.
      #  
      # Although a convenience, defaults can occasionally get in your way. In some cases a default persists longer than desired.
      # The default may be cleared by adding <tt>:name => nil</tt> to <tt>url_for</tt>'s options.
      # This is often required when writing form helpers, since the defaults in play may vary greatly depending upon where the
      # helper is used from. The following line will redirect to PostController's default action, regardless of the page it is
      # displayed on:
      #
      # url_for :controller => 'posts', :action => nil
      #
      # If you explicitly want to create a URL that's almost the same as the current URL, you can do so using the
      # <tt>:overwrite_params</tt> options. Say for your posts you have different views for showing and printing them.
      # Then, in the show view, you get the URL for the print view like this
      #
      # url_for :overwrite_params => { :action => 'print' }
      #
      # This takes the current URL as is and only exchanges the action. In contrast, <tt>url_for :action => 'print'</tt>
      # would have slashed-off the path components after the changed action.

      # Renders the content that will be returned to the browser as the response body.
      #
      # === Rendering an action
      #
      # Action rendering is the most common form and the type used automatically by Action Controller when nothing else is
      # specified. By default, actions are rendered within the current layout (if one exists).
      #
      # # Renders the template for the action "goal" within the current controller
      # render :action => "goal"
      #
      # # Renders the template for the action "short_goal" within the current controller,
      # # but without the current active layout
      # render :action => "short_goal", :layout => false
      #
      # # Renders the template for the action "long_goal" within the current controller,
      # # but with a custom layout
      # render :action => "long_goal", :layout => "spectacular"
      #
      # === Rendering partials
      #
      # Partial rendering in a controller is most commonly used together with Ajax calls that only update one or a few elements on a page
      # without reloading. Rendering of partials from the controller makes it possible to use the same partial template in
      # both the full-page rendering (by calling it from within the template) and when sub-page updates happen (from the
      # controller action responding to Ajax calls). By default, the current layout is not used.
      #
      # # Renders the same partial with a local variable.
      # render :partial => "person", :locals => { :name => "david" }
      #
      # # Renders the partial, making @new_person available through
      # # the local variable 'person'
      # render :partial => "person", :object => @new_person
      #
      # # Renders a collection of the same partial by making each element
      # # of @winners available through the local variable "person" as it
      # # builds the complete response.
      # render :partial => "person", :collection => @winners
      #
      # # Renders a collection of partials but with a custom local variable name
      # render :partial => "admin_person", :collection => @winners, :as => :person
      #
      # # Renders the same collection of partials, but also renders the
      # # person_divider partial between each person partial.
      # render :partial => "person", :collection => @winners, :spacer_template => "person_divider"
      #
      # # Renders a collection of partials located in a view subfolder
      # # outside of our current controller. In this example we will be
      # # rendering app/views/shared/_note.r(html|xml) Inside the partial
      # # each element of @new_notes is available as the local var "note".
      # render :partial => "shared/note", :collection => @new_notes
      #
      # # Renders the partial with a status code of 500 (internal error).
      # render :partial => "broken", :status => 500
      #
      # Note that the partial filename must also be a valid Ruby variable name,
      # so e.g. 2005 and register-user are invalid.
      #
      #
      # == Automatic etagging
      #
      # Rendering will automatically insert the etag header on 200 OK responses. The etag is calculated using MD5 of the
      # response body. If a request comes in that has a matching etag, the response will be changed to a 304 Not Modified
      # and the response body will be set to an empty string. No etag header will be inserted if it's already set.
      #
      # === Rendering a template
      #
      # Template rendering works just like action rendering except that it takes a path relative to the template root.
      # The current layout is automatically applied.
      #
      # # Renders the template located in [TEMPLATE_ROOT]/weblog/show.r(html|xml) (in Rails, app/views/weblog/show.erb)
      # render :template => "weblog/show"
      #
      # # Renders the template with a local variable
      # render :template => "weblog/show", :locals => {:customer => Customer.new}
      #
      # === Rendering a file
      #
      # File rendering works just like action rendering except that it takes a filesystem path. By default, the path
      # is assumed to be absolute, and the current layout is not applied.
      #
      # # Renders the template located at the absolute filesystem path
      # render :file => "/path/to/some/template.erb"
      # render :file => "c:/path/to/some/template.erb"
      #
      # # Renders a template within the current layout, and with a 404 status code
      # render :file => "/path/to/some/template.erb", :layout => true, :status => 404
      # render :file => "c:/path/to/some/template.erb", :layout => true, :status => 404
      #
      # === Rendering text
      #
      # Rendering of text is usually used for tests or for rendering prepared content, such as a cache. By default, text
      # rendering is not done within the active layout.
      #
      # # Renders the clear text "hello world" with status code 200
      # render :text => "hello world!"
      #
      # # Renders the clear text "Explosion!" with status code 500
      # render :text => "Explosion!", :status => 500
      #
      # # Renders the clear text "Hi there!" within the current active layout (if one exists)
      # render :text => "Hi there!", :layout => true
      #
      # # Renders the clear text "Hi there!" within the layout
      # # placed in "app/views/layouts/special.r(html|xml)"
      # render :text => "Hi there!", :layout => "special"
      #
      # The <tt>:text</tt> option can also accept a Proc object, which can be used to manually control the page generation. This should
      # generally be avoided, as it violates the separation between code and content, and because almost everything that can be
      # done with this method can also be done more cleanly using one of the other rendering methods, most notably templates.
      #
      # # Renders "Hello from code!"
      # render :text => proc { |response, output| output.write("Hello from code!") }
      #
      # === Rendering XML
      #
      # Rendering XML sets the content type to application/xml.
      #
      # # Renders '<name>David</name>'
      # render :xml => {:name => "David"}.to_xml
      #
      # It's not necessary to call <tt>to_xml</tt> on the object you want to render, since <tt>render</tt> will
      # automatically do that for you:
      #
      # # Also renders '<name>David</name>'
      # render :xml => {:name => "David"}
      #
      # === Rendering JSON
      #
      # Rendering JSON sets the content type to application/json and optionally wraps the JSON in a callback. It is expected
      # that the response will be parsed (or eval'd) for use as a data structure.
      #
      # # Renders '{"name": "David"}'
      # render :json => {:name => "David"}.to_json
      #
      # It's not necessary to call <tt>to_json</tt> on the object you want to render, since <tt>render</tt> will
      # automatically do that for you:
      #
      # # Also renders '{"name": "David"}'
      # render :json => {:name => "David"}
      #
      # Sometimes the result isn't handled directly by a script (such as when the request comes from a SCRIPT tag),
      # so the <tt>:callback</tt> option is provided for these cases.
      #
      # # Renders 'show({"name": "David"})'
      # render :json => {:name => "David"}.to_json, :callback => 'show'
      #
      # === Rendering an inline template
      #
      # Rendering of an inline template works as a cross between text and action rendering where the source for the template
      # is supplied inline, like text, but its interpreted with ERb or Builder, like action. By default, ERb is used for rendering
      # and the current layout is not used.
      #
      # # Renders "hello, hello, hello, again"
      # render :inline => "<%= 'hello, ' * 3 + 'again' %>"
      #
      # # Renders "<p>Good seeing you!</p>" using Builder
      # render :inline => "xml.p { 'Good seeing you!' }", :type => :builder
      #
      # # Renders "hello david"
      # render :inline => "<%= 'hello ' + name %>", :locals => { :name => "david" }
      #
      # === Rendering inline JavaScriptGenerator page updates
      #
      # In addition to rendering JavaScriptGenerator page updates with Ajax in RJS templates (see ActionView::Base for details),
      # you can also pass the <tt>:update</tt> parameter to +render+, along with a block, to render page updates inline.
      #
      # render :update do |page|
      # page.replace_html 'user_list', :partial => 'user', :collection => @users
      # page.visual_effect :highlight, 'user_list'
      # end
      #
      # === Rendering vanilla JavaScript
      #
      # In addition to using RJS with render :update, you can also just render vanilla JavaScript with :js.
      #
      # # Renders "alert('hello')" and sets the mime type to text/javascript
      # render :js => "alert('hello')"
      #
      # === Rendering with status and location headers
      # All renders take the <tt>:status</tt> and <tt>:location</tt> options and turn them into headers. They can even be used together:
      #
      # render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
