All, I'm looking at a project where I'm being asked to focus mostly on the front-end development. I don't have all of the details yet, but the implication is that the model layer is going to be handled completely in Java, presumably using Hibernate. This gets me thinking about how to manage the model side of things with Rails. Do I effectively create a set of non-DB backed models and then shuttle data back and forth to Hibernate? This feels really not good to me. I'm looking for people who have experience working on a JRoR project where Hibernate was involved. Did you run into issues where the Rails model layer and Hibernate where competing for management of the same model objects? Or did you just give each framework non-overlapping groups of models to manage? Any feedback is appreciated. The right answer is not "just use Rails for everything," btw ;). Thanks, Wes G.
