Anyone who has seen my posts so far will know straight away that I’m new
to Ruby. The kind help and advice I’ve received here has been invaluable
to me and is greatly appreciated! I wish all programming communities
were this friendly!
Anyway, on to the question…
I started off on PHP which didn’t require any real multi-threading
techniques - at least for me - and was more to do with making sure two
people didn’t update the same bit of the database…
I moved to Java which was a whole different ball game - threads and
related issues abounded…
But now that I’m working with RoR - I’m wondering how exactly threading
works in this environment. I want to use a couple of Mongrels as the
backend - and I’m writing the software as per the “Aguile” book.
Basically, am I likely to get tripped up by any thread related issues?
One of the applications I’m porting does a lot of HTTP requests - and
the threading on that (this was in Java) was pretty fiddly - and I want
to make sure I’m doing it right in Ruby if I am going to port a live
application to it
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as always!
