I’d like some suggestions too.

I heard about Juggernaut (http://juggernaut.rubyforge.org/) and RailsChat(http://code.google.com/p/railschat/), but I don’t know if these projects are active.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I wrote a long polling based system a few years ago, with a c++ server
handling the long-lived connections using epoll/kqueue (you could also
do this in ruby if you weren't going to have too many connections).
You might also want to look into websockets, there are a some ruby
implementations of the server side bits around. There are also a
variety of like http://www.ape-project.org/ which purport to insulate
you from the vagaries of what browser supports what methods best (I
haven't used this)

Probably the easiest (yes I know that might be very subjective) way of
getting you running is to use Faye. Just google Faye github or
something to get more infos. its also covered in one of the
railscasts.com screencasts.

yep, I also realized one with Faye follwing the railscast "messagin
with faye"
was straight forward and works well also you want obviously do the
necessary tom improve the user experience a little.
