I am posting these questions for one of my friend who is thinking
about moving from J2EE to Ruby on Rails for his web development
projects within his company. His plan is to develop the product and
then go for venture funding. I would like to get as much feedback as
possible, thank you for sharing your opinions.

1. How mature is the Ruby lang/Rails, funding & support from the
industry/community
2. IDE's, Testing tools in the market and support availability?
3. Support for webservices, XML and messaging services
4. web/appservers supporting deployment with (load balancing/
clustering) and product suppport availability
5. Advantages with examples over J2EE/.NET
6. integration with LDAP, Mail servers etc
7. Database drivers availability for industry leading databases.
8. O/S support? unix/linux
9. List of sites/ASP's running/supporting ruby

and any other supporting info.

My intention isn't to be rude, but this is a real lazyweb kind of post.
You are asking for a significant amount of information, and it's not
even for yourself!  You can learn all of what you asked with a little
searching and reading.  Much of that information can be found in the
archives of this mailing list, and the rest can be found on the many
Ruby and Rails blogs.  Have fun in your search.
