Flash and RoR Shop


Ive just recently started trying to get to grips with Ruby on Rails.

Someone I'm putting a Flash site together for has asked for a shop. Will it be possible for me to use a Flash front end with a Ruby on Rails backend.

Are there any tutorials ou there?

I understand it may be tricky for a beginner but I've got plenty of time to learn how to do it, I just want to know if I'm barking up the wrong tree using the combination?
