One of the hottest new features in Rails 3 is the ability to embed a Rails application in another Rails application. This allows the development of components that range from user authentication to a fully featured forum. These components can then be distributed as gems and fully integrated with another application. In fact, user private messaging could be a stand alone app, which is then mounted into a forum app, and finally mounted into your own custom app.

In this talk, Yehuda and Carl will give an in depth tutorial of this new feature. This will be done by building a CMS, creating a gem out of it, and integrating it into another app.

Topics that will be covered include:

Providing components that can be integrated in the views of the main app. For example, a list of recent articles for a blog sidebar. Sharing components, such as single sign on, across your enterprise. Packaging the app as a gem. Depending on other mountable apps, such as user authentication.
