REST: transfer data between applications

Your login system should provide a way to authenticate using HTTP basic authentication - most authentication plugins do so i.e. restful_authentication. If you're not using any plugin, check #82 HTTP Basic Authentication - RailsCasts to see how to set it up.

Instead of using plain Net::HTTP, you can use ActiveResource (http:// api.rubyonrails.org/classes/ActiveResource/Base.html) or REST Client (http://rest-client.heroku.com/rdoc/).

Thanks for the input. I'm usering ActiveResource right now, but I have a problem when I do a find of my activeresource model.When I do:

Task.find(:all, :params => { :company_id => 78 })

the parameter company_id doesn't seem to get send. When I want to retrieve the parameter with params[:company_id] I get a blank result instead of 78 :s
