I am creating a application that does a lot of background processing.
For this I am using a queue (starling in my case…) and several pollers
that will get a message from the queue and execute some code
corresponding do it.
The code that these pollers process looks a lot like some code in
methods included in some of my rails application controllers. I wanted
to DRY this a little bit, so I tried to use the controllers method.
What I ended up doing is basically using an
ActionController::Integration::Session, exactly like in the console or
when doing tests.
I wanted to know if that was absolutely wrong or if it was ok. I guess
there are some consequences as well, but what are they?
Thanks a lot for your help!
