Hi Joshua,

Overall, looks good!

I had a similar blog post some time ago (to have a fastest possible way
to set things up from scratch):


Looking at the steps outlined in your blog entry, here are a couple of
comments, to simplify things:

  1. You don’t really need to install gem manually. It should come with
    JRuby built-in.

  2. There is no need to add “–include-dependencies” to gem command,
    this is a default behavior.

  3. As far as I remember, there is no need to specify -e development,
    this is a default mode. Also, if mongrel is installed, then jruby
    scritp/server would start it by default (and in development mode).

  4. There is no need to specify driver entry in database config, setting
    adapter: jdbcmysql
    should be enough.
