Believe it or not a very large company that starts with an A and ends
an e (ssh!) is considering using JRuby internally and they have some
questions for the crazy guy me who is pushing it. Our IT department is
big JBoss on Oracle shop and I have managed to convince them that there
be the impact to their practices will be regulated to only 3 areas. 1)
Running builds, 2 )running migrations and 3) application monitoring.
are ok with the first 2 but they had big hopes of using one of these big
application monitoring tools like Quest Foglight. I have done searches
application monitoring and have a few remaining questions:
Status of JMX Support? - is there core JMX support in JRuby. This
issue made me think so. http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-2924.
Thomas E. has the jmx gem which we could use as well.
Pre-compiling ruby classes to Java - it seems like this might be an
important pre-req of successful application monitoring with JRuby so
application monitoring tools can get Java stack traces. Is that true?
anyone else used pre-compiling for the purposes of application
Are there any other resources and/or experience out there with these
“enterprise” application monitoring tools in conjunction with JRuby or
JRuby application monitoring in general?
