HTTP persistent connection support for ActiveResource
branch: master


HTTP persistent connection support for ActiveResource.

Tested with ActiveResource:

  • v2.3.10
  • v3.0.10
  • v3.1.4
  • v3.2.3
  • v3.2.9


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'activeresource-persistent', :require => 'active_resource/persistent'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install activeresource-persistent


Works out of box after adding:

require 'active_resource/persistent'

SSL Support

Supported ActiveResource ssl options:

  • ca_file
  • cert
  • cert_store
  • key
  • verify_mode
  • verify_callback

Unsupported ActiveResource ssl options:

  • ca_path
  • ssl_timeout
  • verify_depth


Currently we use passenger server because it provides REMOTE_PORT enviroment variable. Thus we can ensure that connections are persistent.

Before start suite ensure that passenger gem are installed correctly.
