I’m the pesky guy that keeps posting questions aimed at understanding how to operate a web based business application that is able to serve (scope) many distinct users sharing a common monolithic database.
I’ve finally come up with a database schema that accomplishes this in .xml or .png, and am happy to share this.
Now, for my next question: Is there a way to call a Rails program from a Rails program?
I am effectively creating a ‘Quarterback’ Rails program that based on user input and selected ‘project’ loads the user into the desired application accessing a set of distinct ‘scoped’ data. Obviously, the Session[ ] will be a passed along to this application and when they’re finished they’ll return to the ‘calling’ Rails program.
I expect this is possible…has anyone ever done this? I’ve received responses saying to look at the System() method but that’s too ugly.
