It seems really easy to run Rails on the Java Web Server :

The performance benchmarks look amazing:

Does anyone know how quick it is when running ROR apps? If its stable
and robust then I could see it being the thing to use for production.

Has anyone had any success with it?

What do you think?

Thanks

Chris

I don't know a ton about that system, and I don't have time to read
through
the details, but they're discussing, I believe, it's performance on Java
applications.

The RoR page discusses installing with FCGI, which is a no-go-zone
from my
perspective. Why voluntarily submit yourself to torture when mongrel is
available thanks to Zed's hard work?

One thing I will absolutely lay-down-in-front-of-a-train if I'm wrong
about
is this: Using that web server will not make your Rails applications
8-24x
as fast as hosting them under Apache+Mongrel or Nginx+Mongrel.
