Editorial Reviews

Practical JRuby and Rails Web 2.0 Projects will be the first book on JRuby, an agile open source project that lets Java developers integrate and use the popular Ruby on Rails to build Web applications. The book author, JRuby project co-leader Ola Bini, is uniquely positioned to write about this, as he brings a unique blend of knowledge surrounding JRuby internals, the Java programming language and the Ruby programming language, along with solid experience building enterprise-level Rails applications.

Java has long been the enterprise-level development platform of choice. However a significant trend within the Java community is afoot: Continued interests in dynamic, agile languages such as Ruby are causing many previously staunch Java developers to reconsider their development strategies. However, the costs of doing so can be significant, as Java tools and libraries are both vast and mature.

Well, JRuby is providing a happy medium for these developers, by combining the power of Java with the flexibility of Ruby on Rails to create a completely new type of development strategy.
