Hey Guys,

Kind of a strange problem, hopefully someone can help me out.

I want to set a session in my rails controller which I hit via jquery ajax get.

$.get('/leads/check', function(data) {console.log(data);});

which hits the controller action

def check
session[:tester] = "test"

The session doesnt seem to be set across the ajax call and the js console gave back
"Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)"

Checking the rails logs also verifys that the controller check action is hit..

Anyone have an ideas on this?
