I saw a post on some board a while ago and wanted to know if anybody had heard anything about the current state of JRuby? Some folks on technical governance board at work were asking about it. Last I heard was that maybe 80% of Rails 1.1 was working. Or am I incorrect? Thanks!

It's around that, yes, but we sure would appreciate folks who have the time to try their apps out and let us know where there are holes. There is some documentation of test results here which look promising , but it's a little out of date. Cheers, /Nick : http://www.headius.com/jrubywiki/index.php/Rails_Support

Wow! Thanks for the quick response! I'm definately interested in this....and it would make sellign RoR to management a lot easier. I'll have to try downloading it and giving it a shot. Thanks MudDawg

Rails on JRuby is basically working (I think it's very slow in development mode but tolerable in production mode) - it was demonstrable at RailsConf Europe back in mid-September. I know that having full Rails functionality is regarded as a criterion for reaching version 1.0 of JRuby, so that's a milestone to watch for. If your organisation is using Java/Spring/Hibernate you might also find Groovy and Grails interesting: http://grails.codehaus.org/ regards Justin Forder
