Yesterday it happened to come across an article on “Mingle: A Rails based enterprise product” by Thoughtworks Studio.
They have used Jruby on Rails for many reasons, which made me even more curious to browse around and know on it more and more but comprises three main points…
> Invoking Java code from Ruby
> Or Java libraries can be used with Ruby syntax
> Deploy Rails apps on Java app servers via WAR files
(thereby the rails app can be your desktop application avoiding to create a seperate desktop app)
The idea is seriously damn cool…
