Loving the Ruby on Rails world so far.
My web app needs to browse the local file system for file names and
directories to build lists for processing with a commercial application.
I realize this is a no no for web client apps due to security concerns.
One approach is to write signed java applets to integrate this
functionality. While this would work, I was curious if it is possible to
make a signed piece of ruby code to do the same thing?
The code could be RJS based and signed. Is there any way to make this
happen and keep out of the java world? Is jruby a possibility?
Thanks any help is greatly appreciated,
