What if I could just use Ruby on Rails...

Jaikoo wonders what the world would look like if he could just develop purely in a dynamic environment:

One of the things I’m currently working on is this massively complex J2EE application running on JBoss. The thing I still can’t get used to is bouncing Apache (thats running a full blown Rails app). I mean it starts from cold in like 3 seconds on my live server. That can’t be right? After all JBoss 3.2.3 takes around 5 minutes to startup on the equivilent server. Yes, I know I’m comparing apples with oranges, but sometimes I just wonder how much more productive I’d be if I developed purely in dymanic languages such as Ruby or Python.

Of course, during development you don’t even have to restart anything to see your changes instantly reflected. It’s change’n’reload, baby.
