We are close to releasing a high-volume, multi-lingual, e-commerce
site in Ruby on Rails that has previously been written in an
alternative Java framework (e.g. servlets and JSP).
This is a real-time 24/7 betting and gaming web site based out of
Gibraltar in Europe.
When we embarked on this project, we really wanted to find examples of
other high-volume web sites that had adopted RoR. We did not find any
that helped us argue our “cause”. Having said that, the “Rails way”
armed us with a lot of ammunition to persuade our client to let us
give RoR a go.
Perhaps I am wrong, but I am wondering if the work we have done may
help others in the community when it comes to new projects. We have
been a Java house for nearly a decade and we have now adopted RoR for
our web-based projects. Is anyone interested in following how we do,
what issues we hit etc etc?
Is there an appropriate forum where we can post ideas, comments,
