New way to deploy a Rails application on Windows as a servic

This just came up on

Its an installer that enables you to run a rail application on a window
server as a service.

You can start and stop it, and it auto-starts on reboot.
It only requires a working version of RoR.

Its called windows rails app launcher.

A few caveats:

It requires you have previously installed dotNET (seems 2.0 is the one
used). So you cannot drop it into a barebones setup without it.

It install as unique service, but I don’t see a way that can get
several services install/start from it.

So I can compare it to a kind of crippled version of what
mongrel_service do, of course without the XML config file and the MSI

In any case, is good have alternatives!

Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from
the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent
disinclination to do so.
