Rails-Integration 1.1.1

rails-integration 1.1.1 has just been released !
Source and binaries can be downloaded from http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=2014
rails-integration details can be found at http://www.headius.com/jrubywiki/index.php/Rails_Integration

The fundamental change in this release as compared to 1.0, is performance and compatibility. When used in standalone mode, rails-integration 1.0 had this hack wherein it performed installation of JRuby and the rails libraries at runtime (during web application initialization i.e., once per web container process lifetime). Not only was this ugly, but it also caused compatibility problems with GlassFish since it expected the web application constituents after deployment (implementation dependent)in a particular format. No runtime installation needed with 1.1.1 !
Aiding to the performance improvements is JRuby 0.9.9 which has made great strides in improving performance as compared to its previous versions.
Also, this release is compatible with rails 1.2.x, solves session related and other issues that plagued 1.0.

All in all, a great release that blends the two architectures - RoR and Java EE - giving you the best of both worlds - the development convenience of RoR and the enterprise level features of the Java EE platform. No longer do you have to pick and choose one !

Many thanks to all the folks involved in getting the release out !
