I have been thinking of playing with Jython and GlassFish for quite some time.
I thought of taking the first shot at it. So after looking around a bit I found
out that I can simply use PyServlet to delegate the HTTP requests to my Jython
servlet which can do whatever with the Python script and write it back to the
Servlet output stream. Let us see how I did it:
Install GlassFish v3....
In my last post I mentioned that "...with Rails there are some known limitations, such as the ORM in Rails is not pluggable" by which I basically meant that you can't plug in another ORM and the Rails Model creation and db migration will not generate the correct code for another kind of ORM.

I was at Silicon Valley JUG (Java User's Group) to talk about Ruby on Rails in GlassFish. See Arun's announcement on this talk. The slides used in this presentation can be found here.
The main theme of my presentation was on highlighting Rails development and deployment on GlassFish v2 and using GlassFish gem with live demos.
These are some of the questions asked during presentation...
reported to me about his Grail app not deploying on GlassFish
v3 Preview 2.
The problem reported was that the Grail app was taking lots

not acceptable but considering GlassFish v3 is a complete new
architecture, is still under development and feature incomplete and
above all the preview releases do...
This is further progress in solidifying Sun's Python story for dynamic
language support in the JVM. Frank has been involved with Jython for
quite some time and will be working on making Python language support
in JVM. Ted will be represening Python in the open source world.

This is just so exciting - JRuby, Jython, Da Vinci Machine,
