Web development has never been easier than with Ruby on Rails. Ruby is a popular open-source language and has gained exponential momentum in the recent past.  Rails is an open-source web framework for developing database-backed applications according to the Model-View-Controller pattern.

From the first day using Ruby-on-Rails, you have a runnable application, complete with development server.  JRuby, a 100%-pure Java implementation of the Ruby language, provides a complete runtime for Ruby on the Java platform. With JRuby, Rails can beeasily run on the Java platform. JRuby on Rails brings the agility of Rails to Java technology-based servers and applications, from the simplest web applications to the largest enterprise deployments. It promises agility for web tier developers across all organizations, in addition to the ease of use and proven scalability of Java technology-based application servers, such as GlassFish.

Day 1 (Free) - An introduction to Ruby, JRuby and JRuby on Rails.

You will learn how Java and Ruby applications can be integrated together. It will show how to configure GlassFish to run JRuby-on-Rails applications. By following the simple deployment steps shown in this talk, attendees will learn about the different deployment options provided by GlassFish.  Attendees will also learn how GlassFish provides a more robust development and deployment platform for JRuby-on-Rails applications than the conventional Rails model.

Day 2 ($299) - Deep Dive - In-depth understanding of JRuby and GlassFish.  Register Here.
Attendees will become power users of JRuby and GlassFish by learning various Warbler tricks, Capistrano recipes, Monitoring and Performance guidelines, deployment strategies, and much more.
