Hey guys, I've been a .net developer for a long while and started getting in to rails lately, I was just wondering thou, is there any reason to use say apache or lighttpd over web brick for development. From playing around with it, it seems to be fine, is there some limitations besides maybe performance? Cheers, Camo

I use it for the point of development where I'm not too terribly concerned about my environment; eg when I'm making a few small changes then want to have "script/server" running so I can quickly refresh to see my changes. And I haven't seen any problems either! When I'm at the point of showing my work to a client, beta-testing it, or want to see it running in a "real" staging environment, I always go with apache2.

I concur. Webrick is fine for development, and probably for testing too. I guess the reason people use Apache etc, is that they are more comfortable having an environment similar to their production environment.

Cheers, I was under the same impression, for staging and production you need something more scalable I agree. I just wasn't to sure if web brick was suitable for development, if it had any problems, thanks for clearing that up
