Topic: Integrating Rails into external (Java) Web App?

Hey,

Following scenario:

Existing Java Application running on Tomcat, including user login stuff

and:

New Rails application which I want to integrate in the Java app so I don't have to deal with Java.
The only thing I am not sure about is how to integrate this app regarding sessions.
Users log in on  the java app, so I need to manage/share this somehow.

Does anyone have an idea how to do this?

Thanks in advance,
Christoph

Re: Integrating Rails into external (Java) Web App?

What do you mean under

to integrate in the Java app

If you don't want to deal with Java, I think you will end up with XML-calling like stuffs. And it is not so easy and maintenable, I think. If not, I think the only way to do that is to use jRuby.
