Rails Conf Europe 2008 Day 1 was mostly about tutorials. On Day 2, David Black gave the opening session. After some logistics he introduced the favorite son of Chicago - David Heinemeier Hansson. The theme of DHH's session was "Legacy Software". Now that Rails is 5 years old, the discussions of legacy is indeed meaningful. He showed some code from BaseCamp and showed how refactoring can deal...

The buzz around Google Chrome attacked me...just to make sure Chrome supports Comet, I did try using the monster implementation to see if sockets in Chrome works with Grizzly Comet (and Java). I've first downloaded Grizzly Comet OSGi bundle (buzzword invasion:-)) and the simple Flickr demo we are shipping. To launch the Comet demo, you just have to do: java -jar grizzly-comet-webserver-1.8.5.jar...

Sep 2, 2008 was the Tutorials Day @ Rails Conf Europe. I attended Renegade's Guide to Hacking Rails Internals (partly) and Deploying and Monitoring Ruby on Rails. The first session did exactly what it says - explained the complete internals, digging deep into the code and how to hack them to meet your needs. I thoroughly enjoyed the second tutorial as it covered the deployment in detail and...

If there is one thing that I terribly miss after moving to this country, that would be the variety of Mangoes in India. I've been asked at the United States Customs if I'm importing any mangoes. The fruit's flavor, fragrance and color is just great so I don't blame them at all. There is even International Mango Festival conducted every year since 1987 in Delhi. The festival features more than...

I arrived Berlin yesterday on a non-adventurous United flight from San Francisco, just the way I like it! The flight from Frankfurt was delayed 30 minutes but that's normal these days :) The venue of RailsConf Europe 2008 is same as last year so street names/geography are somewhat familiar. But the conference hotel was sold out so am instead staying across the street. Visited Brandenburger Tor...

I just finished writing a Glassfish v3 update center module. It's a fairly different process from v2, which I also blogged about, so I thought I'd detail what's necessary to do it. Now, it's still early days, so some of these details are going to change. In particular, the packaging tools are improving all the time, so I expect that we'll have to circle back and update this eventually - but...

Light Engineering team (BumperSticker fame) at LinkedIn has chosen GlassFish for running their Rails application. One of the developers on the team reports: Using Warbler, we successfully wrapped our Rails applications into WAR files and deployed on Glassfish (we’ll probably write a more detailed tutorial of this at a future date). A WAR file is completely self contained application that...
