LOTD #6: Rails Deployment on GlassFish in 4 steps and 15 minutes

Charlie describes, in 4 easy steps, how to deploy any Rails application on GlassFish:



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.

One easy way to push Sun hardware sales:

Prepare simple and very practical Solaris manual and CDs.

Keep information simple. Sure lots of Linux users will buy Sun box.

Remember, manual MUST be simple and useful. If i know linux very well, i will not bother to read tons of document to use Solaris. Because most of work does not need.
