My group has a plone-based public web portal thingy that a contractor provides for us, w/all the usual CMS goodies (contacts; news items, hierarchical folder structure, etc.).
Quite independently of that, they asked me to create a project/collaboration tracking application (who's involved w/what project, in what capacity, etc.) which I took as an opportunity to learn RoR. The plone thing runs at the contractor's & is accessible from several different organizations (a requirement). The RoR app just runs here at my site on our intranet (w/out any security at all).
Management may be moving toward the <<plone site>> + <<ror web app>> = <<super web app!>> arithmatic, and it's giving me a queasy feeling.
Has anybody tried to integrate a plone site & a ror app? Single-sign-on is the most desired thing I believe, tho sharing lists of people & contact info etc. would also be nice. Any pointers/advice would be most appreciated.
