= ruby persevere client

* http://github.com/irjudson/persevere

== DESCRIPTION:

This gem provides a simple ruby wrapper around the persevere JSON document data store available from http://www.persvr.org.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

Currently this provides a very simple RESTful interface to persevere. Data to be stored in persevere should be sent as hashes. To make this more robust it should provide some schema/table support, plus validate data against the schema/table. This exists in persevere, but is not exposed by this wrapper.

== SYNOPSIS:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
#
require 'persevere'

#
# Create an object to interact with Persevere
#
p = Persevere.new('http://localhost:8080')

#
# Test POST to create a new class
#
print "\nTesting POST..."
tstObj = { 'id' => 'tstObj', 'extends' => { '$ref' => 'Object' } }
result = p.create('/Class/', tstObj)
print "Response:\n"
puts result

#
# Test GET to retrieve the list of classes from Persvr
#
print "\nTesting GET..."
result = p.retrieve('/Class')
print "Response:\n"
puts result

#
# Test PUT to modify an existing class
#
print "\nTesting PUT..."
tstObj['tstAttribute'] = 42
result = p.update('/Class/tstObj', tstObj)
print "Response:\n"
puts result

#
# Test DELETE to remove the previously created and modified class
#
print "\nTesting DELETE..."
result = p.delete('/Class/tstObj')
print "Response:\n"
puts result

== REQUIREMENTS:

* Persevere installed somewhere
