We’re building a beta for a large organization that is primarily a Java shop. Ideally, we’d like to build the initial beta in Rails and run it like a traditional rails app. However, it would be great to at some point be able to run it using jRuby on the JVM and possible integrate with their existing systems and/or drop into Java for some performance areas. From what I’ve read about jRuby the following appears to be true but I could be totally wrong:
- You can take an existing Rails app and, assumming all tests pass, just run it as as on JRuby.
- You can ‘drop into Java’ if need be to improve perforamnce of parts of an application
feel free to tell me if I’m way off
