[Backgroundrb-devel] Using Backgroundrb?

Hello,

I am trying to build an application that will parse thousands of XML Feeds
in continue in the back.
I really have no idea on how to do this "correctly" with Rails.


Here is my code :


class Feed < ActiveRecord::Base
  def parse
  # Parsing using external lib (syndication gem)

  end
end


class FeedsController < ApplicationController
  def parse
    feed = Feed.find(params[:id])
    feed.parse
  end
end


So for now, if I want to parse all my feeds forever, what I have to do is to
call http://myapp/feeds/1/parse, and then http://myapp/feeds/2/parse ...
This is definetely not a good solution!


How can I use Backgroundrb to do this?

Thanks for your help!
