integrating PHP and Ruby On Rails

hi all,
can we integrate or call php function from rails application ? I have to integrate the my application with flipkart’s shopping cart api.
is any one used such api for shopping cart ?

thanks in advanced.

check out if they have a REST-api and access this API using one of the numerous tools available like ActiveResource or HttpParty. If they don’t have a REST-API, talk them into adding one, there are also numerous php-Tools out there that will help you do that. You probably do not want to go down the road of calling php from rails directly, this is possible but very likely to get very messy.

cheers

Stefan

REST is the best choice, don't wanto mess your code using non standard
