TorqueBox: The Beauty of Ruby with the Power of Java

Average rating: *****
(5.00, 1 rating)

The power of enterprise Java is now available through the expressiveness of Ruby. More and more projects are suited to new technologies and frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. Using TorqueBox, a team’s members can leverage their knowledge, investments, skills, and trust in Java while exploring the cutting edge of new development models.

TorqueBox supports any Rack-based web framework, including Ruby on Rails and Sinatra. Rubyists now get high-performance Java services like HornetQ, Infinispan, and Quartz using familiar idioms and patterns. In this session, Bob McWhirter will cover general Ruby web-framework support and introduce the use of enterprise JBoss services with only a few lines of Ruby.
