LOTD #6: Rails Deployment on GlassFish in 4 steps and 15 minutes
By arungupta on Aug 25, 2008
The main steps are:
Step 1: The App Server
Step 2: Package your App
Step 3: Deploy your application
Step 4: Tweaking (Optional)
And it should only take 15 minutes on GlassFish v2!
The conclusion of the blog is:
Hopefully this walkthrough clears up some confusion around JRuby on Rails deployment to an app server. It's really a simple process, despite the not-so-simple history surrounding Enterprise Application Servers, and GlassFish almost makes it fun :)
The next version, GlassFish v3, allows Rails application to be deployed natively, i.e. no packaging is required. You create a Rails application and run it - just the way you are used to! Read all about it here.
