Pre Registration and Single Passwords with Rails Application

+1 vote

I am building a simple application that will be used internally by a 20 people within an organization.

In the first instance they will need to sign up with their email address. When the app is ready to go live with full features, they will receive an email providing them with the password to log in.

What is important to note that all 20 users will be using the SAME PASSWORD and the password is to be set at a later date.

I would appreciate any advice on how best to do this without them having to select the password in the pre-registration phase. I will be using Action Mailer and have also come across the Lock Gem but it would be really helpful to talk through a few solutions.

Is there a compelling business reason for this? Is there any real security at all needed or desired in this site? If they are all peers, and they know that it's a single password, and they are all peers -- so they know each other's e-mail address -- and they are all peers -- so they may be human and want to prank one another, or spy on one another, or worse. Do you see what I'm saying here? Do I have to mention again that they are all peers?

I have built a rails application with jruby. Since I have no experience with deploying a rails application in a production environment, I have spent some time doing a manual deployment on a linux server with tomcat6 as application server.

In essence, I have made a war file of the rails application with help of the warbler gem and deployed that on the linux server. I managed to get it up and running, but not yet exactly as I need it to be.

I have still some configuration issues. I hope you can help me or point me to the right place, since it may be a tomcat question. But I assume there must be some rails/tomcat expertise among the members of this group...

The point is, the URL in the development server is localhost:3000/invoices (using rails server)
The URL in the tomcat production environment is localhost:8080/rails/invoices

I can't seem to figure out how I can change the port and the document root (/invoices instead of /rails/invoices) in tomcat.

Any suggestions?

I am trying to get google-geo to work, but I am seeing errors.


require 'Google-geo'

mykey = 'blahblahblah'
addy1 = 'xxxxxxxxxxxxx' # xx, yy

geo = mykey
res = geo.locate addy1
puts res.coordinates

...and the error:

/Library/Ruby/Site/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:in require': cannot load such file -- Google-geo (LoadError) from /Library/Ruby/Site/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_require.rb:55:inrequire'
from pdev.rb:6:in `'

Not sure why it can't load it as it's just installed. I can't get anything to work in irb either.

I have just started with rails. I am making a attendance web app. I want to insert student attendance into attendances table and unable to do it as the form just inserts only last entry of the form. Student table and Attendances table have associations (has_many,belongs_to).

Please let me know how the form should be and controller API should look like.
