It's not J2EE.


It's Ruby, so I write less code, and the code I do write is focused on
what *I* want to do, not what the compiler/language/framework wants me
to do.

If Rails is doing something I don't quite understand, I have all the
source code so I can go look under the hood.  And if I decide I don't
care for something, it is fairly easy to change.

A possible con may be execution speed, though so far it hasn't been an
issue for me in any Rails app I've done.
