I’m taking on a re-write project for a ticketing system solution and my
company uses ASP.net with IIS. I want to build the new ticketing system
with Rails as I believe it to be a much cleaner long term solution, and
add to that I don’t care for ASP and how it handles sessions.
I’ve searched long and hard and a lot of posts and information out there
are pretty out dated in terms of NTLM or (integrated windows
authentication) as it’s now called working with Rails.
I will not be using IIS thankfully and would rather go an Apache route
with a mod to handle initial authentication through windows active
directory. We use IE8 and it should pass through perfectly.
But, I need to know what I’m getting into and would like to look over as
many resources as possible before I fully commit to this project. So,
with that said, what resources am I going to need to work on this?
I’m fully familiar with Ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.1, and 1.9.2 and Rails version
2.x and 3.x, including rails 3.1. I normally use apache + passenger +
rails when going to production on a linux server.
How would you approach this and what pieces would you opt for, given
this scenario? And, any updated links on where to go with this?
Thanks for your time.
