Benchmarking JRuby on GlassFish

JRuby Logo

We're on a bit of a benchmarking kick lately. If you missed it yesterday, be sure to read about the new SPECjAppServer 2004 results for GlassFish v1 and v2. Hint: they're good.

Okay, so GlassFish performs well for traditional Java EE technologies. But how well does it handle scripting languages, such as Ruby? Vishnu Gopal decided to find out, benchmarking the same app when deployed on JRuby/Glassfish versus Mongrel/C. Guess what? More good results for GlassFish. In one portion of his summary, for example, Vishnu notes that the GlassFish deployment provides "twice the reply rate in half the benchmark time."
