Since using the standard Ruby MRI seemed to be more trouble than it’s
worth, I figured it should be easier to accomplish my task in JRuby.
I want to run it past some people what my goals are and what I intend to
use. I’m writing a simple application that is to run 24/7 on a
computer/server (Windows mainly, with OS X & Linux in the future), so I
assume this would have to be a windows service (*nix Daemon). It’s
purpose is just to communicate periodically to an embedded device on the
local network. There will be a minimal GUI, with a notification/tray
icon. I need to be able to provide the software to clients without them
installing any external software/libraries.
My research yielded the following technologies.
YAJSW OR JSW (Java Service Wrapper)
Will all of these play together nicely? Is there anything I could change
to make it more fluid?
