This talk will introduce you to JRuby and TorqueBox (http://torquebox.org/). We'll show how TorqueBox features such as messaging, scheduled jobs, services, caching, and distributed transactions simplify complex Ruby application development and deployment. You'll also see how many of these same features allow Ruby and Java applications to be deployedside-by-side, integrating on multiple levels in ways no other Ruby orJava server supports.
