I have created essentially a webapp using sinatra/webrick which allows a
user to queue bits of work. These bits of work are essentially long
So i was thinking of using the Queue class to queue these requests and a
different thread to work thru the list (for example encoding videos).
The user should be able to check on the progress of list AND
reorder/move items up/down the list.
Now i’ve hand written stuff like this in java/servlet, but in Ruby
what’s the best way to ensure that the queue can be enumerated in a
synchronized way? and in a Queue what’s the best way to reorder items?
would i have to use an indexed/synchronized array or something?
Any pointers helpful
