It show how a Java EE Servlet can be co-bundled within a jRoR application. And...
This blog provides how you can get started with Merb on JRuby 1.1 RC3. Merb is another MVC framework (just like Rails) but with a pluggable ORM, JavaScript library and Template language. Rails has built-in support for these using ActiveRecord, Script.aculo.us and ERB templates. Making it pluggable keeps the core very lightweight and still providing support for a particular feature...
