Kenai - High Throughput and Scalable Rails on GlassFish
(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,
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.
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
a Rails application deployed on GlassFish
Read all about it in an
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.
