[ANN] Trinidad, a rack based server on top of Apache Tomcat, release its version 0.8.0

Hi,

this days people are talking a lot about the future of glassfish gem,
and
with this release, I just wanted to notice that there are also other
alternatives.

Trinidad is a rack based server on top of Apache Tomcat, and I just
release
its version 0.8.0 with some new features:

  • Based in the latest snapshot of JRuby-rack, so it’s almost
    compatible
    with Rails 3
  • Now the gem is lighter, less that 4Mb, is this too much? think about
    a
    Tomcat in less than 4Mb :wink:
  • Extensible API. That means that we can add features that tomcat
    offers
    without modify the main gem, JNDI database connection pooling is the
    first
    extension.

But, if you don’t know Trinidad, one extra feature that already was
present
but it could be very useful with Rails 3:

  • As you’ll probably know, Rails 3 routes allow to split your
    application
    in several ones and route between each other,
    http://lindsaar.net/2010/2/7/rails_3_routing_with_rack, ok, Trinidad,
    since
    version 0.7 allowed to run several applications within the same
    container,
    so, that means that just running one instance of Trinidad you could run
    all
    your new Rails 3 distributed applications.

So, please give it a try, I’d be more than happy to get feedback, bug
reports or whatever.

This is most excellent! I did not know of this project, and I will give
it a go!
