LOTD #3: Rails 2.2 going multi-threaded
By arungupta on Aug 18, 2008
Rails 2.2 is slated to become multi-threaded. What does it mean for JRuby users ? Charles Nutter explains it:
Q/A: What Thread-Safe Rails Means
One of the key points from the blog is:
Rails deployments on JRuby will use 1/Nth the amount of memory they use now, where N is the number of thread-unsafe Rails instances currently required to handle concurrent requests. Even compared to green-threaded implementations running thread-safe Rails, it willl likely use 1/Mth the memory where M is the number of cores, since it can parallelize happily across cores with only "one" instance.
NetBeans development and GlassFish deployment already provide an ideal environment for Rails deployment.
