I am thinking about ideas for my masters dissertation and am pretty sure
that I want to do something with Ruby on Rails. I am a RoR newbie but
pretty good with Java and J2EE.
Does anyone have any great ideas for a RoR-based dissertation?
I thought about doing one on ‘JEE5 vs Ruby on Rails’ where I develop two
identical prototype Web 2.0 style applications and compare the
frameworks using a pre-defined criteria such as ease of use, number of
lines of code, maintainability, helpfulness of user communities etc.
As long as I get to develop an application with Ruby on Rails I’ll be
happy but obviously I’ve got to do something appropriate for a masters
Any suggestions would be most welcome.
