Torquebox


#1

Anyone seen this or used it? http://torquebox.org/
Basically looks likes JBoss with JRuby packaged up together. Seems like
a
nice alternative to the Glassfish Gem.

Yeah, I know Bob McWhirter and others at RedHat have been putting in
some great work on it. Sounds like they’re taking it to the next level.
And hey, competition is good, right? :slight_smile: Gotta keep those GlassFish guys
on their toes!

I agree that it does seem to build in more of those enterprise
components.
I do like that it has a scheduling system built in though, seems like a
pretty common issue that comes up, so having Quartz built in with a nice
Ruby wrapper to make scheduling tasks in-container easier.

I still need to actually get my app running in it, I think it requires
you
to vendor all of your gems in your application. There is a lot of
documentation out there, just not a ton about how to actually get a
Rails
app up and going. A nice walkthrough of building a simple app would go
a
long ways I think.

I’m currently playing with it and it seems like a bit more than a
glassfish substitute.
I think it is a somewhat enterprisy stuff for SOAP lovers and messaging
addicted people.
I will try some more of torquebox and get back to you.

In summary: For me it looks really intresting.

This is great and competition is good!

I would also like to point out that glassfish gem is all inclusive ~3MB
server that is more comparable to mongrel/thin/WEb-Rick in terms of
functionality and how Ruby developers would like to run their
Ruby/Rack/Rails application on a server.

Reading http://torquebox.org/documentation/browse/1.0.0.Beta11/ch03.html
and
opening up torquebox-gem, it appears that torquebox gem provides rake
tasks
that can be executed on JBossAS bits. So you need ~200MB
torquebox-bin.zip
for everything to work together. See:

-vivek.

Personally I’d like to see the Quartz wrapper released as a separate
library, since it is such a troublesome question for us right now
(background work, job scheduling, etc).

Yeah, it’s definitely not as plug-and-play as GlassFish, but it brings
other good stuff to the table. I’d like to see a walkthrough
too…perhaps there’s something on Bob’s blog?
