Using two data sources with ember


Hi, I’m writing a frontend with ember.js for a freeswitch conference.

To get the list of contacts I connected the REST adapter to my DB but of course the DB doesn’t know anything about the call state of the contacts.

I have to get the call state as CSV data by an AJAX web request. My thought was to poll the call state (interval ca. 10s) in the contacts-controller and then update every contact. On the other side I don’t think that the controller is the right place for getting data.

My question: Where is the right place to poll the conference state in my ember app and what’s the best practice for polling data and updating my model with them?



The router and more specifically, probably in afterModel or setupController is where I’d begin “polling”. On deactivate of the route you’ll want to turn the mechanism of polling off.
