The main steps are:



Step 1: The App Server

Step 2: Package your App

Step 3: Deploy your application

Step 4: Tweaking (Optional)



And it should only take 15 minutes on GlassFish v2!



The conclusion of the blog is:



Hopefully
this walkthrough clears up some confusion around JRuby on Rails
deployment to an app server. It's really a simple process, despite the
not-so-simple history surrounding Enterprise Application Servers, and
GlassFish almost makes it fun :)




The next version, GlassFish
v3
, allows Rails application to be deployed natively, i.e. no
packaging is required. You create a Rails application and run it - just
the way you are used to! Read all about it href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/jruby_1_1_3_released">here.
