Benefit of using JRuby-on-Rails: Using Java 2D power within Rails

Posted by arungupta on May 19, 2008 at 6:29 AM PDT



One of the main advantages of using JRuby-on-Rails instead of
Ruby-on-Rails is to harness the power of Java libraries available in
the Java platform. The href="http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/2D/">Java 2D
API is a set of classes for advanced 2D graphics and imaging,
and provides extensive support for image compositing and alpha channel
images, a set of classes to provide accurate color space definition and
conversion, and a rich set of display-oriented imaging operators.

published a new blog showing image-filtering effect (negative,
grayscale, brigthen, sharpen). Read the href="http://blogs.sun.com/jenniferb/entry/server_side_image_processing_with">complete
entry.
