LOTD #4: Rails running on GlassFish @ LinkedIn
By arungupta on Aug 20, 2008
Light Engineering team (BumperSticker fame) at LinkedIn has chosen GlassFish for running their Rails application. One of the developers on the team reports:
Using Warbler, we successfully wrapped our Rails applications into WAR files and deployed on Glassfish (we’ll probably write a more detailed tutorial of this at a future date). A WAR file is completely self contained application that can be deployed simply by copying to an autodeploy directory. No more Apache/Nginx reverse proxy, no more Capistrano, no more installing gems on a production container, no more of any of that madness. This was a huge win, and we broke out the champagne bottles.

NetBeans development and GlassFish deployment already provide an ideal environment for Rails deployment. You can read about successful deployments of Rails and GlassFish here.
