“Drop Rails into TomCat and it just works” – Ola Bini
“JRuby is ready for prime time. Application developers should try their applications on JRuby NOW” – Ola Bini
I had a minor problem with its installation, but I’m impressed very much when I’ve got JRuby-0.9.9, Rails-1.2.3, Tomcat-5.5.9 and PKI framework at work working together nicely. A big thank you to the JRuby team.
The problem I had was nothing to do with JRuby, but Subversion. I could not checkout the rails-integration at work since the svn protocol was blocked (“Unknown hostname ‘rubyforge.org'” error) and RubyForge did not allow the checkout over http (405 Method Not Allowed error). When I tried it on a work laptop at home, it still did not work ( Can’t connect to hose ‘rubyforge.org': A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or …). In the end I had to disable a firewall software. Hope this saves someone else’s time.
