... Rails 2.2, Arun on JSF Apps, OpenOffice and OpenESB, FishCAT turns 30!, Adobe and JavaFX

A compilation of today's news of interest:
Arun points out that Rails 2.2 is going to be multi-threaded. That's very good, specially in the context of a JRuby implementation - no need to do magical pooling of instances and the such!
And, talking about Arun, his latest TOTD entry (#42!) is a Hello World using JSF. Good to see Arun helping there; the JSF 2.0 spec includes a lot of interesting new features and we are going to need help to provide examples on how to use them!
Judy reports that there are now 30 FishCAT members around the world that will help improve the quality of the GlassFIsh Server. All of them are non-Sun employees; I count 16 countries at the Quality Portal Home Page.
The JavaFX team provides an introduction to the Project Nile, which provides a mechanism to incorporate Adobe graphical assets into JavaFX; check out the Screencast by Jeff Hoffman and the Tutorial Document.
