JRuby-on-GlassFish Update Center Module - Now Updated with JRuby 1.0.2

updated
the JRuby-on-GlassFish module on the
GlassFish Update Center with

JRuby 1.0.2
,

Rails 1.2.6
and
Goldspike
revision 808.

I created a standalone (self-contained with all the libraries, gems &
plug-ins) and shared (contains only web.xml and libraries
are loaded from the Application Server instance) WAR image for the bundled
Hello World
sample. The

screencast #web9
provide detail instructions on how to create standalone and
shared images. The difference in the image size is pretty significant:

Shared Image 226, 977 bytes
Standalone Image 11,039,883 bytes (48 x)

If you have multiple such applications and each application has one or more
plug-ins then this size grows up pretty fast. The war:shared:create
rake target in Goldspike is buggy and serves the same purpose as

war:standalone:create
(#13265).

Loading shared libraries from GlassFish Application Server instance to keep
your Rails application size to a minimum is another reason to consider using
GlassFish for deploying your JRuby-on-Rails application.
