Macromedia Flash with Ruby on rails

Hello everybody,

I have been given the thankless task of implementing a Flash GUI with
a ruby back-end. Naturally I argued for the merits of HTML (of RHTML)
but to no avail, and so here I am a prodding and a poking around FLASH
and XML sockets. Firewalls aside, this looks like my best approach,
and the plugin known as juggernaut as the best implementation of this
sort of work. Has anyone implemented a similar solution using a
different approach or set of tools?

Any suggestions before the-off would be greatly appreciated…
