Need high level design help

Hi All,

My requirement is as follows,

  1. Each company (have their own set of users and authentication).
    Expect
    around 3000 user for each company.
  2. Each user should be able to view their companies private pages and
    the
    public pages of other companies
  3. Then I have some set of public pages which can be viewed by every
    user
    without any authentication

I have developed the following,

  1. Several static pages (which all public can view without
    authentication).
    This is done with few controllers, menu, sub-menus, blueprint css and
    html.
    ( with ror as the framework ).
  2. A login system, for each user it has login id, company id and
    password.
    I am using MySQL as DB.
    a. The user is unique only along with the company id.
  3. Profile page can be edited by the user.

Want to enhance this system to meet my requirements.

I have following questions also,

  1. Should I have a separate DB for each company in the name of company
    id.
  2. Should I have a separate subdomain (company id) and controller
    (company
    id) for each company.
  3. Is it possible for each company to have their own website and for
    particular services point to the subdomain in my website.
  4. If the above is possible, will there be a problem if website uses
    php,
    java, etc.

I have only 2 months of experience in web development and ror, so please
be
elaborate in your replies.

Thank you very much.

Warm Regards,
Bhasker.

    I wouldn’t bother.

    A separate subdomain seems like something companies would like to have.
    That doesn’t require a different controller though.

I’m not entirely sure what you mean. Obviously they can have their own
website written in whatever they want that links to their part of your
website. The complication will be in the level of integration. For
example if their website is just a set of public pages and you are
hosting some service for them then that should be easy, but if their
website also has a logged in area then they’d probably want single
signon and all that sort of stuff

Hi Fred,

Currently, I use If signed_in ? to display navigation tabs / menus
appropriately.

But when I have lots of companies with different menus, it will be a
nightmare to mantain this kind of code. Do you have a better idea /
suggestion ?

Thank you,
Bhasker.
