README for Roy Orbjson , the JSON-RPC/Ruby ORB
Orbjson is a JSON-RPC ORB (object request broker) library that allows Web applications to respond to JSON-RPC requests (including, but not limited to, the XmlHttpRequest object), executing Ruby code on the server but sending back JSON-serialized objects to the client.
Client code may then be written that treats all method invocations as local; the jsonrpc.js handles the object serialization for the client, and the ruby-json code handles the json marshaling on the server.
For more API detals, see the docs for Orbjson::System
For a more general explanation, with an example, please see orbjson.rubyforge.org/tutorial
