I am trying to mix Flash and RoR (for fileupload without pagerefresh) Unfortunately the requests originating from the flashplayer do not have the right sessionid. So I tried to hackaround with reading the _session_id form the cookie and sending it together with the fileupload POST from the flashplayer to the webserver. But how can i retrieve the session based on the session_id at my controller ? I tried to add this to my action: ::ActionController::CgiRequest::DEFAULT_SESSION_OPTIONS.update(:session_id => params[:session_id]) and I hoped that the session for the request gets created based on params[:session_id], but this is not the case. So how do I retrieve from within an action a session from the session-storage based on a sesison_id ?
