Rails versus J2EE lollipops

Posted by Tue, 12 Jul 2005 23:28:00 GMT

I admit. I never really enjoyed the bitter sweet flavor of the Java lollipop and had the urge to taste it again. I’ve read through a few Struts books and such to get familiar enough with it so that I can assist hosting customers with their configuration issues. Otherwise, I never found myself going out of my way to have the desire to learn it. (I took a Java class about 6 years ago in college… but that was when I decided that I didn’t want to be a programmer).

IBM Developerworks has published this article that compares J2EE and Rails. Is there room for both?

Having been paid to program to work in ASP, ASP.NET (uggh..), Perl, PHP, Python, and now Ruby… I always wonder if I missed out on something by not giving Java another try. I’m not feeling it… I like Ruby for now. Next language? Maybe I will follow in the steps of Lucas and pick up Lisp next… or maybe try Haskell?

What language do you recommend that I dive into next? I want something as sweet as Ruby… is that possible? :-)

Rails API in KDevelop

It dawned on me the other day that I could use the Documentation feature in Kdevelop and embed the Rails API in the windows when I am working in Kdevelop.

You’ll also notice that I use script/console in Kdevelop.

Just thought that I’d share. :-)

Rails 0.13 released, servers upgraded!

Posted by Wed, 06 Jul 2005 21:30:00 GMT

We’re pretty excited that 0.13 is released now.

In celebration, if you sign up in the next day for our Rails Hosting, we’ll toss in an extra free month. :-)

If you’ve been playing with edge rails lately, this is exciting stuff. :-D
