Backgroundrb problem uninitialized constant BackgrounDRb::Me

There is something wrong with your setup. MetaWorker shouldn't be even
shown in controller/rails part of things.

Can you post your worker code and how are you invoke BackgrounDRb
worker tasks from rails?

This is my worker definition. I use ruby script/generate worker MakeView
to generate this worker.

class MakeViewWorker < BackgrounDRb::MetaWorker
  set_worker_name :make_view_worker
  attr_reader :process
  def create(args)
    # this method is called, when worker is loaded for the first time
    process=0
    while process < 100
      sleep 1
      process = process+1
    end
  end
end

This is the code I used to invoke this worker.

session[:make_view_job]=MiddleMan.new_worker(:class=>make_view_worker,
      :args=>{:product_name=>@project_name, :user_name=>@user_name,
              :version=>@project_version})

I have a feeling that you are mixing up syntax of BackgrounDRb across
its varied releases.

For example, syntax for creating new workers is:

http://backgroundrb.rubyforge.org/rails/#new_worker

I know what wrong. I should use this code:

used_job_key = MiddleMan.new_worker(:worker => :foo_worker,\
     :worker_key => "my_secret_job_key")

to get a worker. But after this, how can I invoke the worker with this
key?

examples are right there in the docs. For example to invoke the worker:

MiddleMan.worker(:foo_worker,"my_secret_worker_key").async_do_foo()

examples are right there in the docs. For example to invoke the worker:

MiddleMan.worker(:foo_worker,"my_secret_worker_key").async_do_foo()

thanks it works. but when I call this method I will get this error. I
have started backgroundrb server.
