JRuby, Rails, and GlassFish – “Easiest Rails stack in the world”!!!

Categories: glassfish, rails

@grantmichaels is one happy JRuby/Rails/GlassFish user. Here are some of his comments …

http://twitpic.com/22b5o – the easiest rails stack in the world, jruby 1.2rc, rails 2.3rc, glassfish v3 – (tweeted here)


@arungupta had wiped/restated one of my linodes to refront w/ nginx instead of passenger and it took only 1-2 mins to setup jruby/glassfish -  (tweeted here)


@arungupta can only have praise for how simple it is to get a working, deployable jruby/rack/glassfish stack for sinatra/rails/ramaze etc – (tweeted here)


too easy to run jruby/rack/glassfish behind nginx – going to bed a happy camper tonight … (tweeted here)

We are very happy to know that users find JRuby and GlassFish easy-to-use for running their Rails applications!

Did you know that you even deploy your Merb and Grails applications on GlassFish ? glassfish-scripting.dev.java.net provides all the details.

  1. I am having trouble. I can deploy on Glassfish using Netbeans but my app cannot find the images for the layout. If I switch back to using regular ruby and rails from Netbeans, it works.

    Is there somewhere I can post my question? I am look for a forum of people using JRuby and Rails, especially using Netbeans.

  2. Does your app work on GlassFish outside NetBeans ?

    Does it work using JRuby/Mongrel ?

    You can always post questions to .

  3. I just quickly tried it with JRuby + WEBrick using Netbeans. It is able to find the images just fine.. Of course the ruby-ldap yet, but is another issue. I will try deploying it to Glassfish manually next.

    I should add that when it is running in GlassFish under Netbeans that I can manually specify the link for the images and they appear properly, so I am not sure what is the difference.
