Kenai
(pronounced 'keen-eye') is a fictional character
from Disney's href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenai_%28Brother_Bear%29">Brother
Bear series. It's also a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenai_River">river,
mountain
range
, href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenai_Fjords_National_Park">national
park, href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenai_Peninsula">peninsula
and a city
in the southern coast of Alaska in the United States. But that's got
nothing to do (as much as I know) with either Rails or GlassFish.

But Project
Kenai
was announced last week. It's a developer hub with SCM,
issue tracking, forums
and similar stuff you need for hosting your open source projects. And
it is
a Rails application deployed on GlassFish
v2. 



Read all about it in an
href="http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2008/09/09/Project-Kenai">interview
with the lead developer Nick
Sieger
. Fernando gave a great overview ( href="http://en.oreilly.com/railseurope2008/public/schedule/detail/4892">slides
here), with excellent tuning tips for Rails on GlassFish, in
Rails Conf Europe last week.



Other Rails on GlassFish success stories are described href="http://wiki.glassfish.java.net/Wiki.jsp?page=JRuby#section-JRuby-SuccessStories">here.



And if you want, enjoy this beautiful video of Kenai National Wildlife
Refuge.
