JRuby runs a simple Rails application

The chaps at the JRuby project has been making rapid progress in anticipation of JavaOne. They finally got a simple, but complete Rails application running. I hear it’s not breaking any speed records, but it’s a great first step regardless. This should bring comfort to any developers stuck in large, mono-culture organizations that mandate the JVM as its sole alter. JRuby is a great way to sneak Rails in the backdoor.
