Just wanted to drop a quick note to the list thanking everybody who
gave me ideas for the JRuby presentation I gave at AOL recently. It
went very well, and it was impressive to see how many people had no
idea what JRuby brings to the table compared to MRI.
- Deployment - mongrel_rails “just works”, warbler was great when it
came time to get on Ops controlled production servers
- Java Integration - tons of existing code is in Java, was great not
to have to rewrite equivalents in Ruby.
I demoed some quick Swing examples, which people dug. Also demoed the
Rails mysql world app I did for Charlie’s presentation at JavaOne.
Showing people how easy activerecord-jdbc plugged in got a great
response, as was showing how to hook up to legacy databases.
