i’m writing an app which doesn’t use an sql database, but an openldap
one. i’m not using activeldap, so can’t go with that approach (found it
too resource intensive).
once a user is logged in via the login/authenticate controller/action,
they’re redirected to main/welcome - basically the ldap connection
object is left behined and i need a way to access it from main
i have my login mechanism in the application controller, and would like
to have some models. are there any docs for using rails in this way?
There is nothing stating that you have to use ActiveRecord classes for your models. You should be able to stick any Ruby class in the app/models directory of your application and access it from your controllers.
