Generate JS from RoR - strange delay with send_data

Hi!

I need to generate some JS from Ruby. This is no AJAX related stuff so
RJS templates are not help to me. Also I want to not mix JS with HTML,
so putting JS in .rhtml templates is no go for me.

Currently I made some action in controller, prepared JS code and I’m
sending it via send_data as ‘text/javascript’. In .rhtml templates I use

tag with src pointing to right controller/action. All works as I wanted but there is one issue - after sending data there is big delay before JS generated this way is downloaded. I have sniffed traffic with Ethereal, and whole JS code is send very fast only closing connection looks like: t=0, server -> client last packet of data t=t+ 20 ms, client -> server ACK t=t+ 29 seconds server, -> client FIN, ACK ..... normal TCP teardown follows 29 seconds ! Am I doing something wrong? My action looks like (I've removed real JS since it is not problem with generation of JS only with sending): def show_route Point.find(:all, :conditions => [ "route_id = ?", pid]).each {|x| output_data< "text/javascript") end I'm using Rails 1.1.6. Or maybe there is some other way to generate 'custom' JS not in .rhtml? Best regards, Witold R. http://nhw.pl/

This is related somehow to WEBrick (which I was using as HTTP server)
and squid proxy. For some reason there is something wrong with closing
connection - connection closes only after timeout in WEBrick. I switched
to lighttpd and all is working ok.

But as a side effect I have patch to Ruby interpreter which dumps all
called methods with timestamps (during code execution) - this way I
discovered place where delay was generated. Maybe someone find this
useful - more details on
