hi there,

thanks for sharing this with us.

not sure if this is for netbeans team -- however sharing with you.
=================================================
does glassfish/warble allow for exploded WAR deployment which so makes rails developers so productive ?

I'm seeing that the jboss rails group are working towards an exploded WAR development option.

It will be nice if glassfish developers have something similar.

thank you,

BR,

Hi,

Its great to know that Netbeans makes sure to support Ruby as much possible with its new versions.

It would be great to know what are Netbeans plans to support Merb, as a huge Ruby community is inspired to go with Merb and Rubinius.

I would be thankful, if you can kindly point me out a link for installing new versions of Jruby like 1.1.5 as and when they are released. I see now way to install new Jruby versions on Netbeans.

Thanks

Anjan Bacchu,

I am trying to find an answer for you.

Softmind Technology,

Take a look at this thread on Merb: http://www.nabble.com/Merb-support-to20575647.html

To use a new version of JRuby, install it from http://jruby.codehaus.org/. Then use the Ruby Platform Manager to add it to NetBeans IDE. Get the debugger gems (ruby-debug-base and ruby-debug-ide). See http://wiki.netbeans.org/RubyDebugging for information about installing those gems for standalone JRuby installations.
