Using web service for authenitcation


#1

I am writting a web service for authenitcation of users and was using
web_service_scaffold :invoke for testing it out…and was able to
consume it
using .NET. But my question is, whats the simplest method using which i
can
use the same web service in the current Web App. I mean, not from an
external
application or something but from the current web apps itself.

I found one method in AWDR, and was:

class MyController < ApplicationController
web_client_api :product,
:soap,
http://my.app.com/backend/api
def list
@products = product.find_all_products.map do |id|
product.find_product_by_id(id)
end
end
end

but this is again like invoking the service from outside…

Why not to move all your web service methods to derivative of
ActionWebService::Base and just instantiate an object of this class.
