Is There A RESTful Way To Configure Routes For Habtm?

In Rails you can use nested routes to create RESTful routes for has_one and has_many relationships. Examples can be found on the Rails Guides

I'd like to ask if there is a good way to configure RESTful routes for habtm relationships? For example if I have a relationship A-habtm-B, my idea is to configure nested routes for A has_many B, and nested routes for B has_many A. Would that work? Or is there a better way?

Answer

Since HABTM is a two way has_many association, your approach is correct and nested resources on both sides will work just fine. Other than that, I would reconsider using a has_many :through association instead of HABTM, since it's more versatile.
