It was one of the sessions i was looking forward too .. and was without doubt the most informative
may be coz i have been trying my hands on other java technologies ...
and this will be the one i probably should try now...
Heres what i could grasp from the session
- Open Source written in C
- It was started in 93 with the aim of making a language that was powerful than Perl and more Object Oriented than Python
- Current version is 1.8 ... 1.9 is under development
- There are certain cases where it can be slow
- Everything in it is an Object ... that means we can call the code like "abc".meyjod1() and 1.method2()
- It is dynamically typed
- It supports "Meta-programming" ...
- that means .. one can dynamically generate classes & methods
- modify existing classes
- started in 2002
- Java implementation of the ruby language
- One can call Ruby from Java using JSR 223
- Currently work is going on for 0.9.2
- NetBeans support
- Why Jruby ? advantages over Ruby ??
- Better Performance
- Unicode Support
- Integartion with java Lib
- Why Java User Wants Jruby
- less lines of code
Rails has been in development since the Basecamp project started in mid/late 2003 ... released until the 24th of July 2004
It implements MVC architecture
Not something to build business on... but developers are excited about it
sites like http://www.rubyonrails.org/screencasts
have articles like that tell " in 15 mins we go from scratch to complete weblog engine "
talk about ease of coding
even i am excited to know more about it
