Preferred way to start creating an app

I think a lot of guys here use rails with jruby.
How do you create an application?
Simply with

jruby -S rails new myapp -m


rails new myapp -m

Unless I missed your point, this is a rails question, not a jruby
I suggest you ask it to the right mailing list.

Hi Mauro, you simply create your new app - no special setting should be

Rails core should detect that you’re on JRuby and sets-up gem
‘activerecord-jdbc-adapter’ (and rhino as well)
or if you’re using a built-in supported DB such as MySQL … than sets
gem ‘activerecord-jdbcmysql-adapter’ in your Gemfile.

You can safely create an app from MRI and than simply add

gem ‘activerecord-jdbcmysql-adapter’, platform: :jruby
gem ‘therubythino’, platform: :jruby

and maybe change a few MRI specific such as :

gem ‘mysql2’, platform: :ruby

gem ‘therubyracer’, platform: :ruby

and it should all work under both JRuby as well as MRI.

There’s only one catch for AR-JDBC adapter - 1.3.0 is in the making and
latest stable (1.2.9) does not officialy support Rails 4.x … you can
a beta or master for now.

Hope it helps, K.
