Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video Server request handling, part of Ruby on Rails 4 Essential Training.
…In this movie, I want to give you a better understanding of how server requests…are handled because there are some subtle,…but important points that you need to understand.…Previously, when we looked at the MVC architecture, I showed you…a diagram that simplified it down to just the MVC portion.…Let me give you a slightly more expansive…but still greatly simplified view of the rails architecture.…First, our request originates with the browser.…It goes to the web server, for processing.…In our case, that's web break.…But, it can also be apache, nginx, or something else.…
First, the web server will look inside the projects public directory, for…any file whose path name exactly match the request that came in.…If it finds that file, we will return that…file to the browser, and never access the rails framework.…That makes sense.…There's no reason to use the framework when the request…is for a self contained, static HTML page or image.…And it really speeds things up when the server is gathering images,…style sheets, or other static assets to send back to the browser.…
