is it possible to share session data between 2 separate rails apps So, for example, You can login once and your session is recognized by the other app as well? I tried just sharing the session cookies but it seems like some session data is also cached. I get this error in my development.log file: "Session contains objects whose class definition isn't available. Remember to require the classes for all objects kept in the session." thanks in advance

The Problem is that you store whole objects in your sessions, like many user auth plugins do: @user = User.find(:first, :condition => blablabla) session[:user] = @user So, you would have to share that User Model .rb-file in all your apps, because there's an object in the session that is derieved from that Class. If you can change your app to only store actual data (e.g. only store the user's ID (and group name or whatever) instead of the whole object, that error should not come up again.

Check out this link: http://dotrb.com/articles/2007/01/11/mongrel-and-s... I had a project that had a similar requirement and i used simple rss and mongrel to wrap things together. Its not really a session between two apps, but it might give an idea.. Good luck.
