I'm an amateur rails developer, and am currently developing a project
that needs a somewhat specialized chat client. I've recently become
enamored with DRb, and was wondering if anyone had tried implementing
it when attempting to make a chat client. The reason I want to use DRb
instead of some other way of doing it is because if I understand it
right the client should be able to do more to the data than with a
more standard form of chat client. It's not so much that I know
exactly what I want to do with that ability now, it's more than I'm
thinking about future updates and the greatest growth potential.
This is however my first attempt at a chat client, and I really don't
know what I'm doing. I've been told Juggernaut is the best option...
anyone know if DRb and Juggernaut can be used together? Or is it
possibly better to design a chat client in flash and integrate it with
webORB or something? (if what I'm saying is somewhat nonsensical I
apologize, quite new to this whole thing).
