Thought you guys may be interested in a new site running under JRuby.
We’ve just released this to coincide with the iPhone launch in
Australia this morning:
It’s a pretty simple deployment, two Tomcat’s load balanced behind an
Apache box, the Tomcat’s are running the rails app using JRuby 1.1.2.
The application itself is fairly simple, it’s a business lookup
service with location awareness (for some carriers). It makes requests
to back end web services and renders the results, it’s completely
stateless . If anyone is interested in performance stats I’ll be
able to give them in a few days.
I’d like to thanks everyone involved in JRuby for their good work, we
had a few issues with warbler  but it basically “just works”. The
operations guys who deployed it weren’t even aware that it was a Rails
app, they’re used to doing Java deployments, and thought this was the
same. Using JRuby was a big political win for us in this regard (from
an ops and architecture POV).
 Well, some state is kept in cookies.
 Which I’ll post about later.
