Hi everybody, sorry if the message does not have this place there.
I'm a one-year experienced php developper.  I  use this language for all
web applications.
I prefer php to Java/J2ee because, of its simple features,   its
and  the fact  that  it  let  the user
choose the way he wants to program(This is particularly benefical when

For me the  shibboleth

 of j2ee is: "why make it simple when we can make it complicated".

On the other side, i find that php lacks of high level components. I
you have to male your own database abstractions, and your own components
make your developpment easy and efficient.

So my question, is what can ruby can offer that php and Java can't.
I would be very grateful, if i had concretes examples instead of general
ideas and concepts.

Thanks to every body.

As with everything. There are more means to get to an end. I'd suggest
to take
a look at the screencasts found on the site below to see the power of
ruby on
rails at work.
