Status and future of glassfish gem

I was looking for a hint on my problem with using the glassfish gem and
came across some worrying information:

It seems the developers of gfgem has abandoned ship. Any thoughts on

“JRuby Guys”, EngineYard: what do make of this? What is your recommended
approach for deploying JROR apps and how (and when) will provide
something on EY?

BTW: I could try and help out with the gem, but I do not have the
appropriate skills. I know java but not enough about the app server env,
I’ve not used glassfish and never built a gem.

+1 on wanting to help, as I said in the other thread. It was a long
time I did anything in Java though, but building ruby gems and hacking
ruby is not a problem.

I managed to build the jars in the repo:

svn co
(guest, blank)

To build the various pomfiles you just cd into the appropriate dirs
and use maven.

Thats about as far as I got, and I would appreciate if anyone familiar
with the project could write up some kind of high-level description of
the project.

At the moment I’d probably recommend we evaluate the complexity of the
GF gem versus David C.'s Tomcat-based Trinidad. The latter may
be easier for us to consume, even though the former has had some
refinement and may have more features (for now).

Ok, I have to confess that this reply is an auto advertisement and I’ll
another mail later with a more properly subject.

I just release a new version of Trinidad, a Rack application server on
of Apache Tomcat, perhaps you could give it a try:

jruby -S gem install trinidad

As an extra point I have to say that I got a completely different job,
related with ruby nor rails, some time ago and I didn’t leave its
development and I’m not thinking about either :stuck_out_tongue:
