JRuby-on-GlassFish Update Center Module - Now Updated with JRuby 1.0.2

Pramod updated the JRuby-on-GlassFish module on the GlassFish Update Center with JRuby 1.0.2, Rails 1.2.6 and Goldspike revision 808.

I created a standalone (self-contained with all the libraries, gems & plug-ins) and shared (contains only web.xml and libraries are loaded from the Application Server instance) WAR image for the bundled Hello World sample. The screencast #web9 provide detail instructions on how to create standalone and shared images. The difference in the image size is pretty significant:

Shared Image 226, 977 bytes
Standalone Image 11,039,883 bytes (48 x)

If you have multiple such applications and each application has one or more plug-ins then this size grows up pretty fast. The war:shared:create rake target in Goldspike is buggy and serves the same purpose as war:standalone:create (#13265).

Loading shared libraries from GlassFish Application Server instance to keep your Rails application size to a minimum is another reason to consider using GlassFish for deploying your JRuby-on-Rails application.
