I am considering using Ruby to write a service that will run as a back end process and Rails for the web front end / management console. Are there any suggestions or examples of how I might leverage some of the Rails components like ActiveRecord for use by the back end? It would also be nice to program application logic in a way that it could be shared by both the back end Ruby application and the Rails web management app. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Use rails for the whole thing, using script/runner for the backend components. This will allow you easy to the entire environment system, without doing any additional work. -- -- Tom Mornini
