Rolling With Rails

Hi all,
Its been a while and I want to give you some good news. The good news is this . Ruby on Rails is HOT!!. Sure Is.

  • Rails is a MVC imptementation for ruby on Windows / Linux
  • Can Run under CGI / FastCGI
  • or as Standalone server such as Mongrel / WebBrick
  • Yes they can be clustered and can be tucked behind Apache via a PROXY ( more on this later ).
  • If Properly configured, its quite comparable.
  • Yes , there is a small effort of learning a language ( but is worth it)
  • Ruby developers prefer SVN as the version control mechanism
  • Supports popular DBs such as Oracle, MySQL and DB2 and more.
In summary its a great framework for RAD based development.
