    You dont need all that mess, Get Groovy and Grails it is super easy to work it, compile and deploy as a war on Glassfish or Tomcat thats all, you dont need gems and nothing, when you compile Groovy code it will be Java bytecode. This days groovy is getting groovier and fast really fast. 2c.
  3. It is also extremely easy to generate a war file from a rails project. I should admit that there is about one hour learning curve before you get to that point while in groovy it is easier. Competition between grails and rails/jruby frameworks only benefits the developers who are using those technologies. At this stage I should say that rails is much more mature than grails.
