I'd like to be able to dispatch from one controller action to another conditionally, based on a combination of query parameters and data in the database.
What I have right now is something like:
class OldController < ApplicationController def old_controller_action if should_use_new_controller new_params = params.dup new_params[:controller] = "new_controller_action" redirect_to new_params return end # rest of old and busted end end class NewController < ApplicationController def new_controller_action # new hotness end end
This works just fine, but it issues an HTTP redirect, which is slow. I'd like to be able to do this same thing, but within the same HTTP request.
Is there a clean way to do this?
Edit: The bounty will go to someone who can show me a clean way to do this that leaves the controllers and their actions relatively untouched (other than the redirect code itself).</div
