I would highly recommend you check to see if it's possible to find java/tomcat hosting. If you have decent amount of customers. You may also want to consider setting up a EC2/S3 instance and run your own server that way. using php front end to proxy like this, I don't think comet feature will

there are several advantages. 1: you get to leverage type safety and the excellent XML support of Scala, and lift-json. 2: assuming it's not a open for all public REST server, you'd have to deal with security/auth. Lift will help here. 3: In the past, every time I've done a backend REST server

no, if you are using the current milestone or snapshot, you'll see it's still using scala 2.7.x series. I don't think lift will switch to 2.8 anytime soon. too many changes and too many unknowns. I'm not even sure if scalatest compiles at this point with 2.8 snapshot. Or in short, let mvn take

The simplest way is to use scala to write web services and use rails to make REST request to scala. I mean, you can go all out and write the web service using scala lift, and use rails to write the front end per se. Having said that, unless you have legacy applications or some very specific
