URI to use to send a post request from Rails to a Tomcat-based Application

Hi,

I am working on sending data via a Post request from a rails
application to a java servlet running on tomcat on the same machine
(localhost:8080).
However when I use
res = Net::HTTP.post_form(URI.parse(‘http://localhost:8080/’),
{‘q’=>‘ruby’, ‘max’=>‘50’})
render text: res.body

It just goes to this uri http://localhost:3000/posts/submit
and shows me the apache tomcat homepage
It does not actually go to the tomcat application. (I could check this
with breakpoints)

I think I am not using the right URI.
Please let me know of the right URI to use or please let me know of
some sample working URIs that you know of where I can post and see the
results of the post request.
That would help me ascertain if the Post request is working or not.

Thanks,
Bhavik

hmm, i usually use
httpartyhttp://railstips.org/blog/archives/2008/07/29/it-s-an-httparty-and-everyone-is-invited/
for
these kind of stuff so I don’t have to worry about the Net::HTTP class.

That 's where you’re sending the request - why is this a surprise?

The “right URI” is whatever the target servlet is mapped to in that
application. (The fact that it’s running on Tomcat is irrelevant; it’s
the
app that will process your request, not the servlet container.)

you can use REST way to communicate between both application. Use Active
Resource, look at a this article
