Do you really need both prototype and JQuery? In general, if you can keep it all in one JS framework your app will be easier to build and maintain. You can do drag-and-drop with Prototype and Scriptaculous. DevArticles has an excerpt from the book Ajax on Rails which explains drag-and- drop: http://www.devarticles.com/c/a/Ruby-on-Rails/Drag-... If for some reason you must have only the JQuery version of drag-and- drop, you may want to investigate using JRails (http://ennerchi.com/ projects/jrails) so that the rest of your Rails helpers are implemented in JQuery, and then you don't need prototype. Lastly, if it turns out that you absolutely have to have both libraries, there is a no-conflict mode in JQuery that makes it possible. Out of the box, prototype and JQuery don't work together because they both define the $() function. If you call jQuery.noConflict(), then you can use jQuery() instead of $(). Note that this means you'll have to translate any jQuery code you copy from other sources. More details here: http://docs.jquery.com/Using_jQuery_with_Other_Libraries -- Mark.
