Hello All I am new here.
First off, I have never been a great programmer, or even a functional
I worked briefly with ASP back years and years ago and was able to
create a database driven site. The height of my achievements…
I am now diving into Ruby with the hopes that this will be my first real
successful programming experience.
So heres my question.
Say ACME Company has all of their company apps written in .NET.
These apps interact with a database holding all of their clients
ACME's website also has an application which interacts with the DB as
well to make payments, update client info etc…
The website's back end was all done in .NET too…
All of this is housed on an IIS server.
I would like to move the websites to a linux server and move the apps to
So would it be possible to rewrite the web applications using RoR and
interact with the same database as all of the existing .NET
Long story short:
.NET apps and RoR apps all interacting with the same DB?
Does this make sense?
Please excuse me if this is gibberish, Im new...
Any help appreciated!
