Yeah I was just confused since he wrote jRuby - guess it was a typo

Yup, stoked about deploying Torquebox as you saw from my email haha. Can finally leverage all my java friends for help :)

That's for JRuby, though, right?  He's asking about an app server for non-JRuby.

Yeah, TorqueBox looks awesome.  We're not using it yet, but we may soon.

Try out Torquebox :) I'd love to hear from anybody using this in production, as I'm about to.

The whole point of that project from RedHat is to lift 20 years of java knowledge and expose Ruby APIs to them, so you can imagine there's some pretty crazy stuff in there. Check this out, you basically have an entire ecosystem on one box (or a cluster):
  • persistent services that are monitored (if you need to listen to a streaming API or do something like APNS for iOS)
  • Scheduled/cron jobs
  • punt anything to the background, and that returns a future/promise object
  • messaging services (looks like it has all the RabbitMQ I care about to me)
  • websockets/STOMP <-- haven't seen that in while, hah
  • distributed transactions <-- I don't even know what to do with these!

Hello Ruby People,

I've been working with JRuby for a while, but I'm curious how people are feeling about Passenger and Unicorn.

Thanks, John Woodell
