  • From Java to Rails: Techniques for Adding Ruby Agility to Your Java Web Stack

    by Nick Sieger

    The Ruby programming language makes for great integration glue in enterprise applications. With JRuby, the Ruby implementation that runs on the JVM, and Rails as our glue for web applications, we can inject a high degree of flexibility into an existing Java web application. And we can do it in a way that cohabitates with legacy code and does not require significant rewriting of existing functionality.

    We'll present strategies for incrementally taking advantage of the productivity of Ruby and Rails in a legacy Java environment. We'll also highlight new features of the latest version of Rails that can be applied to take productivity to new levels once you've begun to harness the power of Ruby and Rails in your existing application.

    At 1:45pm to 2:30pm, Tuesday 20th September
